After installing libreoffice-fresh 7.2.0-2 from extra, and running the libreoffice command, I get the following error:

/usr/lib/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/ undefined symbol: FT_Get_Paint

This is solved by installing the freetype2-2.11.0-3 package. Should this be added as a dependency to the libreoffice-fresh package?
This task depends upon

It is already in the dependency tree. Your problem was a partially updated system, which is not supported.

I did an update and it fixed my error. Try updating with 'sudo pacman -Syu' and see if that fixes your issue.
