I am running a "parallel installation" as described in https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_in_parallel/Linux
(In summary: Download the main and helppack .tar.gz files, and for each untar into a temp directory and then, for each .deb file, do
dpkg-deb -x <file.deb> /path/to/installdir
I'll attach a simple download-and-install script which reproduces my installation.
This regression seems to have happend in the 7.x branch (I think 7.1, not sure). The 6.x builds do not have this problem.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the attached installer script (or equivalent) to make a "parallel installation" from the deb main and helppack (en-US) tar files.
2. /path/to/installdir/opt/libreoff*/program/soffice --writer # or --draw
The above 404 error appears in a browser
