For instance, I purged OpenOffice 4.1.2 directly from my shell, as:

apt-get purge $(dpkg-query -l "*openoffice*" | grep "^ii" | cut -c 4-32)

and installed OO 4.1.3 (<
https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/openoffice/4.1.3/binaries/en-US/
>)
by un-tar'ring the archive (after SHA256SUM verification), changing to DEBS and:

dpkg -i openoffice*deb

Thus far, Apache OpenOffice 4.1.3 has been performing well  in AMD64
Debian Unstable (Sid) -- according to my habits.
Thank you to builder of ApacheOO for Debian!


Best Professional Regards.
