Since it is based on Ubuntu open a Terminal and issue the following command
Code:
sudo apt purge libreoffice

On my computer libreoffice is a metapackage and that instruction will remove everything. Try this instead
Code:
sudo apt purge libreoffice*

So, is it there or not? Can you start it from your Menu?

On my computer installed programs appear green.

RIGHT click on each of the LibreOffice entries and where possible choose "Mark for complete removal".
