Thanks for the reply, Frank.

Yes, I did do "rpm -ivh *.rpm" and it installed without issue.  I've never
had that kind of problem before, and I frequently do the same thing
(i.e., install with yum) with whatever the latest LibreOffice is. In fact
I did it back when came out (not too long ago, but I  misremember
exactly when that was) without problems, but this time I couldn't install
that version either even though it had worked not too long ago. Which
makes me wonder if yum has some new "feature" (i.e., breakage).
