libreoffice-calc, libreoffice-core and libreoffice-writer pkg are listed in the results of dpkg -l | grep -i libreoffice as removed. How can I install these packages?

@karel gave a good link, which is https://askubuntu.com/questions/223237/unable-to-correct-problems-you-have-held-broken-packages

I'll write out what it says, just in case the page is removed later.

Try reinstalling the package with aptitude instead of apt install

You can try:

sudo aptitude install <packagename>

or:

sudo aptitude -f install <packagename>

aptitude in general will give up less easily. The difference between these commands is that -f will mean that aptitude will attempt to remove/downgrade less packages, even if it means not all changes will go ahead.

Edit: I'll add another solution, just in case this doesn't work.

Try sudo apt update OR try sudo apt autoremove

Hope it helps!

Three packages are listed in the results of dpkg -l | grep -i libreoffice with rc flags meaning that these packages have been removed, but their configuration files have not been deleted. To install these removed packages open the terminal and type:

sudo apt purge libreoffice-core libreoffice-calc libreoffice-writer # remove old config files 
sudo apt update
sudo apt install libreoffice-core libreoffice-calc libreoffice-writer
