That's all about libreoffice and java-1.8.0-openjdk (why does the latter seem to have a higher version in mga5 than in mga6... oh, I see: the mirror is outdated
6/core/java-1.8.0-openjdk-188.8.131.52-1.b10.1.mga6 was pushed to updates on 4 May, but it isn't on that mirror.
http://mirrors.mageia.org/status shows that mirror fully red, for all Mageia releases. Seems it didn't sync since 2018-02-01 :-(
It's a pity we still don't have Mirrorbrain working.

openjdk and openjdk-headless under debug. Everything looks fine until it
gets to ...
Marking java-1.8.0-openjdk-headless as manually installed, it won't be auto-orphaned
Marking java-1.8.0-openjdk as manually installed, it won't be auto-orphaned
So it's not seeing the .mga6 package as being different, let alone newer than
the Mageia 5 package.
Didn't happen on a repeat test after the changes to perl-URPM.
Closing as fixed. Please reopen if you see it again.
