The only way to solve this was to completely delete LibreOfficeDev - even dragging the app bundle to the WasteBasket was not enough to allow installation to proceed.

This is a regression over previous versions. 

The script should search for all existing installations as it used to do (and displayed such in the corresponding menu dialog about where to install the pack).
