Hallo Rene,

I meant that the user should be notified and if the user has Admin rights,
then they can automatically update, if not, well, then should be prompted
that they need Admin rights to do so. But if everything in one step is too
much, then I'll suggest:

1st Step: Notification
2nd Step: Automatic Upgrade, downloading the whole new installable and
starting it, which should first remove the old version.
3rd Step: Automatic Upgrade, with no need to remove, but only to patch the
previous version

And of course, for the Linux version, in my opinion it makes no sense, since
usually the update is made by the system based on the repositories. At least
I use  .deb based Distros, which take care of the upgrades for me. Still it
would be nice to be notified if there where newer available version which
are not provided my my current repository.

I'm not a developer, so I have no means to do it my self or even support
doing it, but I'm just making suggestions here, I'm not requesting or
imposing anything, so I apologize if that seemed different.

Schöne Grüsse / Cheers / Saludos

If he or she can install it, that's not our problem.

That's sometihing else tahn what you requested: Let's look at the post

"for when is it planned to have Automatic Update for Windows & Mac
LibreOffice, for Linux usually makes no sense?

My opinion, the user should be able to decide if it's completely Automatic,
or they only get an info pop window, offering a one click update.  "
