Thank you.

I had the PPA setup, but I removed it. I prefer to decide which version of LO it have installed. PPAs, like Repositories, seems to make me feel that I am not in control of which version I use. I kept getting the message that I need to update/upgrade to a different version with the PPAs and Repositories seem to, most of the time, remove the version I am using and install an earlier one.

Now that I am not upgrading my desktop from Linux Mint 16 to 17, due to a dependency issue that causes two printers not to produce the proper coloring when printing photos and image, I am not getting an updates anymore. So I do not have that problem.

For now, I would rather install the exact version of LO via the terminal than use a PPA. That is just my opinion. For many, it is more convenient for the PPAs to do the work for them. So, when I decide to go from 4.2.5 to 4.3.x, I will install it myself. I have not tested 4.3.0.x on any system. I prefer to test it out on a system that is not my "production" and default one till the version is tested on a Win7 and/or Ubuntu-based boot of my laptop.
