I have never been able to open a PDF file with that extension, and it seem like every time I look at the extension entry on the site you linked to, the compatibility rating for OO4.x keeps dropping.
I just took another look and it's showing 34% for compatibility and 66% non-compatibility.
To me, this indicates that, while some people have had success with using it, most have not.

Personally, I'd just forget about using that extension and grab a copy of Adobe Acrobat.

Yes, don't waste time trying to use Openoffice. The editing capability is very limited. Follow RussellB's suggestion

Adobe Reader is a standard PDF file reader, usually installed on new Windows computers. Adobe Acrobat incorporates Adobe Reader; it is a commercial product which adds PDF editing facilities.

If you don't want to use Adobe, another rather nice pdf reader (not editor) is https://www.foxitsoftware.com/products/pdf-reader/
OpenOffice 4.1.6; Ubuntu 18.04

On our Windows boxes I use to install http://www.sumatrapdfreader.org/free-pdf-reader.html (very small, very fast and very yellow).
