I am currently running Ubuntu Mate 17.10.1 on my laptop. I was going to try Ralph's snap suggestion and found that LibreOffice had already automatically been updated to the latest version.

The April SLOLUG topic will be Snaps.

Snaps are containerized software packages that are simple to create and install. They auto-update and are safe to run. And because they bundle their dependencies, they work on all major Linux systems without modification.
