I have same problem on Kubuntu 12.04. I tried to install Polish dictionary from deb package.
Comment 3 NoOp 2012-08-30 19:19:46 UTC
It's not just the Dutch dictionary, it's also in the English US package as well on both 32bit and 64bit. Install errors:

http://pastebin.com/3aKwSYP1

And afterwards breaks the system(s) (32bit and 64bit):

This bug appears to be a duplicate & regression of:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=41237
[ Installation of dictionaries failed with ""/singletons/com.sun.star.deployment.ExtensionManager": loading component library failed""]

Using the method mentioned in that bug report and Bug 41290 - dictionaries do not install in daily builds as of 28/9/2011:
<http://www.piprime.fr/1480/manually-remove-broken-package-debian-ubuntu/>
I was able to clean the system:

$ sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/info/libreoffice3.6-dict-en.* /tmp/
$ sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq libreoffice3.6-dict-en
$ sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/info/libreoffice3.6-dict-es.* /tmp/
$ sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq libreoffice3.6-dict-es
$ sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/info/libreoffice3.6-dict-fr.* /tmp/
$ sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq libreoffice3.6-dict-fr

$ sudo apt-get -f install

Not sure whether to reopen 41237, or if this bug's title should be change to inclued other dictionaries as well.
Comment 4 NoOp 2012-08-30 19:20:46 UTC
Changed importance to high as the bug affects the installation of other packages via dpkg and apt-get.
Comment 5 NoOp 2012-08-30 20:01:00 UTC
Maybe this is the problem:

$ debdiff libreoffice3.6-dict-en_3.6.0.4-104_i386.deb libreoffice3.6-dict-en_3.6.1.2-2_i386.deb
[The following lists of changes regard files as different if they have
different names, permissions or owners.]

Files in first .deb but not in second
-------------------------------------
-rwxr-xr-x  root/root   DEBIAN/postinst
-rwxr-xr-x  root/root   DEBIAN/postrm

------------------------------------------------
Installed-Size: [-26208-] {+26224+}
Version: [-3.6.0.4-104-] {+3.6.1.2-2+}

Same for -es and -fr (missing postinst & postrm files) - and same on 64bit .deb files.
Comment 6 NoOp 2012-09-04 00:54:36 UTC
No issues with reinstalling 3.6.04 over 3.6.1:
Setting up libreoffice3.6-dict-en (3.6.0.4-104) ...
SUCCESS: unopkg returns successful!
Setting up libreoffice3.6-dict-es (3.6.0.4-104) ...
SUCCESS: unopkg returns successful!
Setting up libreoffice3.6-dict-fr (3.6.0.4-104) ...
SUCCESS: unopkg returns successful!

Breaks dpkg with 3.6.1.1:

 libreoffice3.6-dict-fr_3.6.1.1-1_i386.deb

And as with 3.6.1.2:
$ debdiff libreoffice3.6-dict-en_3.6.0.4-104_i386.deb libreoffice3.6-dict-en_3.6.1.1-1_i386.deb

Nor did I have any issues with installing 3.5.5rc3 over 3.5.6.2.
