OpenOffice update problem

Running Ubuntu 9.1 and the OO 3.1 that came with it. Update manager just 
popped up with an update to OO.  It downloaded and started to install 
then stopped with a message that OO was running and must be shutdown to 
proceed. I didn't have OO running and looking at it's options 
Quickstarter is not checked.  Looking at running processes with the 
System Monitor I don't see any reference to OO or Quickstarter.

It refuses to complete the update and says I have a broken package.  I 
used the Snynaptic Package Manager to fix the broken package but still 
can't finish the update because it thinks OO is running. What do I need 
to do to fix this?

Thanks,  Jim
