Install Error when trying to install under Kali Linux 32-bit (Debian)

Post by cweir73 » Tue Dec 24, 2019 3:58 pm

I am getting the following error message when trying to install.

I have tried downloading the package again and also done a restart.

Error message:

Please go to

If the standard Debian way of installing doesn't work, you may try the generic way at the bottom of the page:
"If your system is not listed here and you cannot run the installation with the instructions given above, you can install SoftMaker FreeOffice using our .tgz-based installation packages.

Depending on your system, download the 32-bit or 64-bit .tgz installation package. Then uncompress and untar it, and finally run the installation script inside:

If you use a 32-bit Linux system:

tar xvzf softmaker-freeoffice-2018-973-i386.tgz
If you use a 64-bit Linux system:

tar xvzf softmaker-freeoffice-2018-973-amd64.tgz
