I think WPS office suite is a better option than LibreOffice on Linux OS, especially it is more compatible with MS Office.
Uninstall LibreOffice suite
Remvoe LibreOffice by
apt-get removein one command line instead of
apt remove, as the latter doesn't support wildcard.
sudo apt-get remove --purge libreoffice-\* -y
Remove installation packages no longer needed
sudo apt autoremove
Install WPS 2019 from official website
Go to WPS website, click and download the *.deb package. The package version is 184.108.40.20622 and released on 2020.06.08.
Go to the download folder and install, then delete the installation package.
sudo dpkg -i wps-office_220.127.116.1122.XA_amd64.deb
To launch the WPS writer, just type:
You will see a very clean application, however it has no internet connection for online service.
Install WPS 2019 by snap package
Alternatively, you can install the snap package because WPS has already launched in Ubuntu Software Center. Search wps and find to install, or install it with the following commands.
Update repositories and look up available packages
sudo apt update
sudo snap find wps | grep ^wps
There are several versions in the list, and
wps-2019-snapis the latest one, while
wps-office-multilangis actually WPS 2016 which is not recommended right now.

Install the latest version 126.96.36.19905 (which is not as updated as the package from official site).
sudo snap install wps-2019-snap
I suggest download WPS from official website and install it from your local drive. It's more fast than installing from the snap archive servers, and you will get a more updated version as well.
