I have had this problem before myself, but with Ubuntu 13.04 mostly.
The Ubuntu software center does not remove all of the older version. It
is not just the menu system. Somehow the system still tell you that the
previous version's "core" is still installed and the new menu system is
different than the core info. It did not happen when I went from 4.0.0
to 4.0.1, but .2 and .3 seems to be doing this.
There is something remaining from the previous version that trips the
I use 12.04 and 13.04 but with MATE as my desktop environment. The error
happens when I run Unity as well.
The "apt-get remove" command is something I forget most times. So I use
a different process.
I go to the Synaptic Package manager and search for "libreoffice"
Then I click on the "box" column to have all the green ones in a row at
the top of the list.
Then I "check" all of the green boxes for removal/uninstall.
After the files are uninstalled, I use the terminal to do the full 4.0.3
install, both parts.

Below is the method I've used for originally OpenOffice, and now
LibreOffice. This is for a 64 bit install. I've done 3 clean installs
of Ubuntu 13.04, and replaced the Ubuntu version of LibreOffice with
the Document Version of 22.214.171.124 on each machine without issue. This
method has never failed me:
Instructions for the 64 Bit Debian Version:
Download LibreOffice_126.96.36.199 to the desktop.
Right click on it and extract it to the desktop. This will give you
the folder LibreOffice_188.8.131.52_Linux_x86-64_deb
Run the following terminal commands to install it:
1. sudo apt-get remove libreoffice*.*
2. sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/LibreOffice_184.108.40.206_Linux_x86-64_deb/DEBS/*.deb
3. sudo dpkg -i
4. Drag Icons from Dash to the Unity Launcher Bar if using Unity.

No, none of the modules run (--writer, calc, etc.)
There's apparently some older ubuntu menu integration stuff still on the
machine - possibly even leftover from my 3.6 installation.
