Matt was right - I had manually deleted libreoffice stuff - but only after I had purged each package using apt.  The Nautilus package had at that time lost its ability to show hidden files - part of known bug, so I had missed ~/.libreoffice  I will be more careful next time.  But there were other good reasons to re-install the OS and it is not especially time consuming.
