    Hi:
    I recently installed the latest stable version of LibreOffice (5.4.5.1). Using the installation instructions from LibreOffice does not remove the previous version you have installed. Is there a way to do this without affecting your latest install? Thanks.

    Not sure if you installed via the official repo?

    But you can try the below in terminal which will clean up your packages and remove all unused dependencies;

    Cleaning up of partial package:

    Code (Text):
    sudo apt autoclean
    Cleaning up of the apt cache:

    Code (Text):
    sudo apt-get clean
    Cleaning up of any unused dependencies:

    Code (Text):
    sudo apt autoremove
    A good practice to avoid any left behind is to use the autoremove command whenever you want to uninstall an application.

    Code (Text):
    sudo apt autoremove application-name
