I did that.... several times   Even tried going back to the 2.3 version that 
Ubuntu supports....   but when I do that it seems I get a messed up version 
without any icons on the menu bar...  It works, but something is not right.

But for instance, right now,  7.10 is telling me I have updates for 12 pieces 
of OO plus  python-uno.  So it is trying to update the installed version.

And it gives info that looks like:

Candidate version:

Installed version:  2.4.0-9287

So it thinks it should install the ubuntu version.
