Unable to open Libre Office in Linux Mint

I was previously able to open Libre Office documents but now I am unable to open any Libre Office application at all.

I recently did apt-get update and upgrade.

EDIT: This happened after I resumed my session from a Suspend state. It opens correctly after reboot. Not sure if bug.
