All packages in the TDF bundles (downloaded from www.libreoffice.org)
have "libreoffice4.1" or "libobasis4.1" in their name. AFAIK Ubuntu
does not contain any package with the name (because the TDF packages
contain the version in their name, but the Ubuntu packages don't). So
I fail to see how it wants to "update" a package from the TDF bundle.

If the update-manager wants to update a package with neither
"libreoffice4.1" nor "libobasis4.1" it its name, then it is a regular
Ubuntu package it is updating... Nothing from TDF.
