seems to be a problem of a specific macOS version.

- Please provide your macOS version
- In addition you may give answer in https://ask.libreoffice.org/t/cant-install-dutch-language-pack-on-macos/61401 (though this question is related to Dutch language pack) a try.

May it be specific to a version of *language pack* perhaps?

> May it be specific to a version of *language pack* perhaps?

My tests were done with the FR langpack available for download from the French version of the LO download site.

The kind of message that was reported occurs when :

- either the user is attempting to install a later version of langpack over an older version of LO, without having first updated the LO version (e.g. 7.2.x over a 7.1.x installation);

- or else trying to install the langpack onto an app bundle that is not named "LibreOffice.app" (e.g. due to multiple different LO versions being installed with differentiating bundle names).

I have seen these error messages in the past, though, just not in the versions I have tested, so it definitely is a thing.

Can't it be the other way round, like installing older langpack over a newer LO? which is what I suspected actually.

Good point, haven't tried that, but I suspect you're right.
Comment 19 Roman Kuznetsov 2021-09-02 19:24:18 UTC
I can confirm it. I can't install a Russian language pack for LibreOffice 7.2 on macOS

And I think it's the same problem as it was in bug 134607 because after "fix" it I still couldn't install RU language pack to LO on macOS (I tried different version)

Yes, i have done it several times.
I have tried whith an old system version --> Yosemite 10.10.5 and it works

I am now under High Sierra --> 10.13.6  and it does not work at all

I just regret the LibreOffice 7.1.1 whicj was working in French under 10.13.6
Comment 22 MG 2022-01-09 16:17:16 UTC
The problem is still present whith the actual version 7.2.5.2  !!

Installing the french version says the version 7.2.5.2 is not a VALID VERSION !!!
Comment 23 MG 2022-01-09 16:18:32 UTC
i cannot understand why the problem listed for a long time is still present

Perhaps because it doesn't affect all users, and/or only sometimes.

Unfortunately, no repro for me with :

Version: 7.2.5.2 / LibreOffice Community

FR langpack installation worked fine for me.
