I believe (from scanning this site) that they were removed to update and work on them recently

I see no Add anywhere in Synaptic
In the other thread that the first message here linked to, I was rather smugly saying, in effect, "Don't be silly, of course Open Office is in the repos." Now I find that, apparently, it was (is?) not. If badmotor's belief is correct, then I fear this is an illustration of why Linux has a slightly Wild West reputation. IMO developers shouldn't remove such major applications like OO from the repos "to work on them". Surely this can be done off-line? It makes those of us who want to promote Linux and PCLOS look foolish and it creates a climate of unreliability, which I would be happy to leave as a heritage for a certain commercially-based OS to preserve.

I uninstalled what I had, tried re-installing openoffice - task and it still is nowhere in the apps menu.
My system also froze and now I have over 500 broken packages on synaptic.
