External links stopped working after upgrading libreoffice to version 6. Version 126.96.36.199 from libreoffice reposotories (.deb) works well. Version 6+ from the same official repositories does not work.
The same behavior is experimented using Debian's .deb packages.
It is not possible to update or otherwise get data from URLs.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open file with external links
2. A warning: automatic update of external links not enabled by default appears on top of the document.
3. Press "enable" button.
1. No URL is read or updated: "The link could not be updated".
2. In menu Edit -> Links Manual or Automatic options are greyed out and "Update" button does not work.
Spreadsheet should be updated after retrieval of the linked URLs as in previous versions.
