Then it's not possible the source of the problem is
LibreOffice. There's simply no code that would download a version &
force an update (without quite a bit of user interaction), in the
versions distributed from

There's a theoretical possibility, if instead you've installed the
Vanilla version from the Windows Store - that one got upgraded from
6.3 to 6.4, since 6.3 is now end of life. But your description would
not match that either, as that package does not ask for a reboot.

If you've further input (screenshots, exact versions, MSIs you've
used), can we please move this conversation to the QA list (in Cc), as
it's much better placed there (and if it's a real problem, we'd need a
bugreport filed anyway).

All the best,
