I've recently upgraded LO 7.5 to 7.6 . Now, when I open Writer, I get the error message:
/opt/libreoffice7.5/share/template/common/styles/Default.ott does not exist
now, I do remember making kind of edit or another to the default template a few months ago. But - even if I did, this should certainly not happen: Either the edited template should be at a path within the user's home directory; or it should be at a path that's relative to the installation folder; or there should be some other handling of template paths which are invalidated by an update to a new version.
How did you edit the template in the first place?
I assume you uninstalled 7.5?
Does the message pop up in a dialog or in the console?
Please more information so we can try to reproduce.
Please also see bug 78707.

I don't remember... I'm sorry. It might have been related to trying to reproduce some other bug, where you need to have edited the default template. I'm not sure, sorry.
> I assume you uninstalled 7.5?
Yes, I have, and I was still getting this message.

I'm sorry I don't have more information. But - this should be enough to have developers check the location of the default template, for the case of it somehow pointing to a previous installation's folder. Or some other appropriate heuristic.

Grepping through my user profile, I see .config/libreoffice/4/user/registrymodifications.xcu has paths like
So I guess in your case $(brandbaseurl) is still pointing to /opt/libreoffice7.5
