I am running Linux Mint 16, due some printer dependency issues [missing
dependencies that will not install properly] with the later version[s]
fo Ubuntu based OSs. I also run Ubuntu 14.xx with MATE desktop environment.
SO, I have seen this issue before.
If you can go into the DEB folder and rerun the Applications Menu setup
file, then it should fix the issues with the icons. To me it appears
that the menu icons are pointing to the old version.
I tend to delete the desktop icons for LO and replace then with the ones
in the Applications/Office menu. I do this with every upgrade from say
4.3.x to 4.4.x [like 4.2.x to 4.3.x].

thanks for your support =)
i followed all the apt-get check, clean, autoclean... steps and surprisingly i am now able to start
LO from the command line. but, when i use the icons i still get the error message: The application
cannot be started. User installation could not be completed.
after the LO-logo pops up.
it's fine for me this way, because i am able to work with LO started from the terminal. but if you
have any suggestions how to solve the problem with the graphical start, this would be perfect =)

Glad to hear it installed properly this time :)) Congrats! :)
Thanks for letting us know how you fixed it! :)
You might fix the synaptic problem by doing;
sudo apt-get check
Also doing a reboot after getting a bunch of updates sometimes helps
and then clean-up by doing these four commands;
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoclean
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get remove
Very handy that the keyboard up-arrow brings previous commands back
onto the command-line so that you can edit them! Then Ctrl left-arrow
skips a word at a time.
Having said that i have 2 *buntu systems that now don't open synaptic
so it might be some problem that lots of people are having at the
moment and that will doubtless be fixed fairly soon.
Err, wrt me getting 2 copies of the message - i really don't mind.
Pressing delete twice in quick succession is not much more onerous
than pressing it once. I know some people get all unreasonable about
it but i'm fine with it.
It's not Thunderbird's fault btw. It's the way this mailing list is
set-up now. It didn't used to be but people fought for it to be made
awkward and clunky like this. TB has a button called something like
"Group Reply" or something but almost no other commonly used emailer
has such a ting so people have to use "Reply to all" instead. So we
are very used to getting matched pairs of messages.
