[libreoffice-users] LO upgrade under Linux - delete old files


Good morning
Probably I am just not smart enough (again).
I upgraded LibreOffice from 6.0.7 to 6.1.6 on a machine running Linux Mint 19.
The Readme file instructed me to run a dpkg command to unpack the .deb files after extracting them from the downloaded compressed file.
I did that.
It seemed to run fine and completed successfully.
When I clicked on the Writer icon I used before, it is still LibreOffice 6.0.7 that opens.

Looking around, I found that there are OTHER LibreOffice icons, which start the 6.1.6 version.
Are those old files supposed to remain there under Linux?
An update on Windows deletes those (as far as I know).
Looking in software manager I am told, that Libreoffice is installed, but there is no distinction between 6.0.7 and 6.1.6.

If I update Libreoffice in the future again, will all the old files be retained?
Should I **uninstall** Libreoffice first and then make a fresh installation of the new version, or is there a way of cleaning out old files?
(I presume, after a fresh installation I have to set up my preferences etc. all over; that is something I would like to avoid.

Thank you.
Thomas
