Is there any easy way to incorporate the removal of the previous version?

Does it get removed when you log out and back in?

Okay, well...

Did select all the repos in Synaptic (except for Opera and Virtualbox) - but nothing happens after reloading and hitting check for updates.
Did then download .deb tar file, unpacked it but what to do after that?
Thought installer would take over like Windows does.

The easy way that we have described repeatedly here (sorry), is to use MX Package Installer.

The easiest way to get LibreOffice 6 in MX-17 is to use the MX Package Installer.
Start -> MX-Tools -> Package Installer -> Full App Catalog (tab) -> Debian Backports Repo
Select libreoffice and libroffice-base and click Install.
Yes, it will automatically remove the older version as it installs.

I updated to LO 6 via the Debian Buster repo.I don't mind because I don't have a scanner, but gscan2pdf was removed.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-6-0-1 doesn't do anything for me.
Arrrggh.
