libreoffice-fresh is listed as a optdepend but if one tries to open a document a error message is shown.
Roughly translated it says "Oops! Libreoffice support is not available. Please contact your system administrator"

I also tried to install libreoffice-fresh-sdk, but to no avail. Something seems to be broken

Additional info:
* gnome-documents: 3.34.0+6+g966b04ec-1
* libreoffice: 6.4.3-3

What occurs in journalctl -f
JS ERROR: Unable to load document: Gio.IOErrorEnum: Internal error: LibreOffice isn't available

Steps to reproduce:
Start gnome-documents and click on a libreoffice file. Then the mentioned error pops up.
This task depends upon

Currently `gnome-documents` is no more maintained
("Archived" state in GNOME's gitlab)
furthermore it does not work anymore (segmentation fault).

I should think if keep this issue open (as well as keep `gnome-documents` in our repo... as well as its deprecated dependencies)
