What command line are you using? Are you installing all packages 
altogether? I mean, I would expect that all files in /opt/openoffice4/ 
are overwritten by files from the newer packages, and this is just 
normal; but in your case it looks like there is a mismatch between the 
old "owner" of that file (package openoffice-gnome-integration) and the 
new candidate owner (openoffice-core01).

Assuming you are upgrading multiple deb packages with the same 
command-line, what happens if you add openoffice-gnome-integration (from 
the proper directory) to it?
