I'm running DebianTP2. I did an apt-get upgrade today. It broke with unmet dependencies that centered on libreoffice. I am in a state where I am unable to install/remove/upgrade packages with apt. So I removed libreoffice.

apt remove libreoffice \
libreoffice-avmedia-backend-gstreamer \
libreoffice-base \
libreoffice-base-core \
libreoffice-base-drivers \
libreoffice-calc \
libreoffice-common \
libreoffice-core \
libreoffice-draw \
libreoffice-gtk2 \
libreoffice-impress \
libreoffice-java-common \
libreoffice-librelogo \
libreoffice-math \
libreoffice-report-builder-bin \
libreoffice-script-provider-python \
libreoffice-style-galaxy \
libreoffice-writer \

Now I am in a state where all of libreoffice is removed except libreoffice-base. If I attempt to do

root@njere:~# apt-get remove libreoffice-base

Removing libreoffice-base (1:5.2.7-1+deb9u3) ...
dpkg-divert: error: mismatch on package
when removing 'diversion of /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/basic/dialog.xlc to /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/basic/dialog.xlc.noaccess by libreoffice-base'
found 'diversion of /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/basic/dialog.xlc to /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/basic/dialog.xlc.noaccess by --add'
dpkg: error processing package libreoffice-base (--remove):
subprocess installed post-removal script returned error exit status 2
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I am close but still not able to install/remove/upgrade packages with apt.

Any ideas on how to fix? Once I get back to a state where apt works and I have a consistent set of package installations, I'll try to figure out how to get libreoffice installed again.

I am running an unmodified /etc/apt/sources.list* from DebianTP2.
