@Frantisek : is this still the case ? My installation seems to be ok
Comment 2 Frantisek Erben 2014-10-07 13:48:25 UTC
Tested on
– LO (Build ID: 62ad5818884a2fc2e5780dd45466868d41009ec0)
– LO (Build ID: 958349dc3b25111dbca392fbc281a05559ef6848)

Unfortunately LO does not offer me an update :-(

Is Check Update function broken in 4.3.x branch for OS X x86_64?

Quite possibly, it was deactivated.

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

   Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (5.0.1 or preferably or later)

   If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
 If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

   Update the version field
   Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
   Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 

1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)

2. Test your bug 
3. Leave a comment with your results. 
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat:

Thank you for your help!

online update will try to propose the arch that was installed now. So if you have 64bit version for windows installed, it will create a link that points to the 64bit version.

For Mac, there are no 32bit versions anymore, so you won't get an update for those (but you should get a note that it is not available for that architecture, that you can switch to 64bit version):

"No 32bit update available - for OS X 10.8 or later, please install 64bit version of LibreOffice."

so closing as worksforme.
