I think you may have found a bug. I have both LibreOffice and installed. I have LibreOffice Base in my Dash as a favorite. Yet, When I bring the cursor over its icon, the popup window shows LibreOffice 7.0 Base. But when I use Help > About LibreOffice, I see LibreOffice

There is one other difference that I have. When I install a version of LibreOffice, I modify the bootstraprc file to rename the folder containing the configuration files in the home folder (.../.config/libreoffice/). I replace the 4 on the last line with the actual number of the LO version. For example, my .../.config/libreoffice forlder contains these folders: 6.3, 6.4, 7.0. This allows me to run all three versions at the same time if necessary.

Anyone familiar with updating from LibreOffice 6.0 to 6.4, on Ubuntu 18.04?
I am used to using the terminal, using Bash, as I do most administrative
things in my OS from there.

I already added the LibreOffice PPA and updated my system. I saw
LibreOffice 6.4 all over the place when the update was happening, so I
think things were updated properly. However, when I do libreoffice
--version, it says I am still on 6.0

Anyone know how I can update from 6.0 to 6.4, in Ubuntu 18.04?
