It seems to be a bug in the installer: starting with LO 5 there's no more extra rpm libreoffice-headless.
Former LO v4 rpm provided only 2 files: /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/ and /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/
In Libreoffice 5.x comes with rpm libreoffice-core and doesn't exist anymore.
The installer script is looking for "libreoffice-headless" - this is hard-coded starting at line 2635

Code: Select all

if [ $PLATFORM = "RHEL6_64" -o $PLATFORM = "RHEL7_64" ]; then
   STORE_PACKAGES="libreoffice libreoffice-headless"

This should be changed however to match the different version of RHEL/CentOS 6 and 7.
You may safely ignore the warning- Precision Preview will work.
