Thanks for reporting the issue.
Would you mind testing it with LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/pre-releases/ ? This version is due to be release next week and contains many fixes related to the area affected in your bug...
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.
I installed version 22.214.171.124 alongside my existing LO installation, but none of the modules (Writer, Base, etc.) will open. I click on their icons, and the only reaction is that I see a "wait" symbol for a few seconds, but nothing else happens.
Could you please run LibreOffice from command line like 'soffice --safe-mode' ?
Does it work that way ?
@dmneufeld : you did install the ubuntu provided report-builder and report-builder-bin packages didn't you ?
By default, Ubuntu does not install these packages, even if you choose to install the LibreOffice Base package.
If this is the case with your setup, then this is NOTOURBUG.
@dmneufeld : you might also need to tell LibreOffice where your "Java Home" is to be found - this is an environment variable - I read recently that some installations of Ubuntu were not picking this up correctly and thus anything that required Java instantiation was failing. As the report-builder relies on Java to function, if a JVM can not be started then the report-builder will not start either.
Thank you @Xisco Fauli and @Alex Thrugood for some good suggestions. Moving a few states away this week will keep me from testing them out. When I am able I will keep working on this and report the results back here.
I asked for help, and got some other ideas here:

Bingo, this was the solution. The -bin package was installed, but the other one was not. Having both packages installed fixed the problem. So right, this is NOTOURBUG.
Glad you could fix it!! Closing as RESOLVED NOTABUG
