Well, I managed to install OpenOffice. I did some deeper searching and found some instructions. They are as follows.

First I removed LibreOffice with this command. dnf --setopt=clean_requirements_on_remove=false remove libreoffice*

Second I Block openoffice.org-ure and libreoffice-ure package updates like so -

Edit file

nano -w /etc/dnf/dnf.conf

Then I added an exclude line it that file -

Add exclude row

[main] exclude=openoffice.org-ure* libreoffice-ure*

Than I installed Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2 RPM packages by doing the following - rpm -Uvh RPMS/.rpm RPMS/desktop-integration/openoffice4.1.2-redhat-.rpm

Once it was installed I ran the OpenOffice4 command and the app open up and ran for me, it also installed all of the Icons and Links application menu.

Unfortunately, OpenOffice crashes after being open for a couple of minutes. If I can't figure out how to stop it from crashing I will have to go back to LibreOffice. Problem is I have deleted it off of my system and I don't know how to put it back on. Uhgggg!!!
