The reason for the error is that LibreOffice depends on a system component, MS UCRT, to be present on the system. LibreOffice installer includes the component, and tries to install it when installing LibreOffice. The component installation requires Windows Update service to be accessible (LibreOffice knows how to temporarily enable the service if disabled by usual means, but not when advanced methods to disable are used, e.g. associating it with Guest account). Also, in older versions of LibreOffice, a check was made if UCRT is already present on the system prior to installing, and its installation was skipped when it was detected.
