See if that helps: [Tutorial] Installing Apache OpenOffice on GNU/Linux.

Please add [Solved] at the beginning of the title in your first post (top of the topic) with the *EDIT button if your issue has been fixed.

In fact, the fix is: sudo apt purge libreoffice*
It is one of the first commands described in the tutorial.

For completeness, I note that Villeroy says

In order to install AOO as primary suite while keeping LO you perform the last step like this:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
cd desktop-integration
sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite *.deb


which renders the
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo apt purge libreoffice*

line unnecessary

My own feeling is that one should concentrate on using one or other program, not be switching between the two. I remain with OpenOffice as its facilities and stability are suitable for my needs; your choice may differ.
