I am not certain that you are actually doing anything wrong. But this may not be the answer you were looking for.

I quote from the Writer Manual – Chapter 5 Formatting pages – Restarting page numbers.

Note: You cannot assign an odd page number to a left hand page or an even page number to a right page. LibreOffice strongly adheres to the convention that odd page numbers go on right-hand pages and even page numbers on left-hand pages.


This is the normal printing convention as a quick look of any printed book will confirm. However, you can suppress the printing of blank pages on say, a single sided printer when exporting to PDF or printing on your own printer. So you will not be printing blank pages.
