Most of the time when printing from LO, I get multiple copies, and I have

At one point I thought it might be a printer problem, but it does not
happen when I print from Adobe Reader or other applications, only from LO

Does anyone have any insight???

All I can think is to check that the number of copies is set to 1 when printing. That may sound obvious, but there are two places it can be set, which might catch you out. After going to File > Print, click the General tab and select the required printer. Then:
1. Make sure "Number of copies" on the dialog itself is set to "1".
2. Click "Properties...". This brings up the printer-specific properties, where there is also usually an option to set a number of copies (check all the tabs - it varies by printer).
Set any other options as needed, and click OK to print as usual.

These two settings operate separately... In the past, I've ended up with 9 copies instead of 3, when I set LibreOffice to print 3 copies and set the printer properties to print 3 copies (thinking changing the option in LibreOffice should have updated that option for the printer). It turns out that makes LibreOffice send 3 copies to the printer, which then prints those 3 copies 3 times!
