I have, in the past, downloaded three different versions of LibreOffice to install on OS X ver.10.11. Some of them more than once. Every time installing the language pack before opening LibreOffice for the first time gets the message " “” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash. "

That is not paranoia. Unless someone is really out to get me.
