updater: how can I get rid of the libreoffice still version?

hello,
I am using the libreoffice suite for years. Until last month I did not know there are different versions of that office suite. Now I learned that I use the fresh-version and besides there is also a still-version available. I would not mind about it, but the updater lately offers updates for both versions. Since I never installed a still version I am not interested in updating it and would like to get rid of that option. For me there is no reason to install two different versions of libreoffice and I wonder, why the updater now wants to update a version I never installed and definitely don't want to.
Is there an option to deactivate the update for the still version because that is really irritating.
Theo

If it's offering to update it, it's likely detecting a part of it still installed. Explore to your X:\PortableApps directory (or similar location as you have installed it) and see if there is a LibreOfficePortablePrevious directory. If so, that's why the updater is offering to update it. Deleting that directory will stop the behavior.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Hello John,
thanks for your feedback. You are right, there was a "LibreOffice Previous" directory containing the still-version. No idea how it got there. Deleting that directory stopped the behavior as you mentioned.

Hidden

You may have had it installed before and hidden it in the platform (right-click option) at some point.
