Description RavenRAMIREZ 2020-01-23 15:11:21 UTC
I'm contacting you because I just updated your version of libreoffice and it took me more than 40 minutes? It's a joke I hope ?
Could you review the update installation software?
Thank you.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on the update pop-up
2.Redirection to the free office page and launch of the download of the setup for the new versions.
3.Start the installation by following the steps. End of installation 40 minutes is too long

Actual Results:
Installation of the top long update via the installation software

Expected Results:
Faster software installation

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
During the update the software did not stop calculating my disk space while I have more than 500go of free and once calculate the progress was extremely slow

There is no automatic update, and the check for update dialog only triggers (offering the download link) at major version release milestones.

The project has looked at doing incremental updates, but reality is that the installers will remain monolithic full packages.  Any latency during download, install/patch is an os/DE issue.

For some folks, package removal/uninstall of old version, followed by clean new installation can be faster route to update.
