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
You can try:
sudo aptitude install <packagename>
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.
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
