Description steve 2022-10-11 07:47:02 UTC
The Install button in the update check dialog is not functional on macOS.

Since it invokes false expectations with users, if possible, it should not be shown on macOS until the implementation is complete and functional.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Help > Check for Updates… with an old LO version
2. update is found and download button becomes active

Actual Results:
Clicking Download button opens LO download website. If this is expected behavior, there is no point in showing an Install button.

Expected Results:
Install button currently is not functional on macOS, thus it should not be shown.

Or a functional update mechanism could be implemented.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Thanks Steve.
This applies to all OSs and is already tracked in bug 74934, so marking as duplicate.
