If you are new to Linux (if you are old to Linux too, but I'm digressing) DON'T USE THE OFFICIAL BUILDS: you'll end up with repeated fonts, repeated dictionaries, repeated libraries and a difficult to maintain package. ALWAYS use repositories from your distribution. I don't use Mint, but found this entry on mint-guide:

LibreOffice - latest version via PPA repository

Your question has actually nothing to do with LibreOffice as it is about your operating system and its procedures of software management. Ask in a relevant forum, this one may be a good place. First, however, learn to ask good questions. In particular, consult the Linux Mint documentation first.

Wow sorry, I guess you know everything, and do not bother to be polite to NEW people, really good way to make me feel welcome here, thanks.

Deinstall old Libreoffice: Program menu > ... > LibreOffice > mouse right hand click > Deinstall

Download v from website (you already have done)

Unzip each of the downloaded files into one folder (numerous deb files)

Run terminal in this folder and execute in it: sudo dpkg -i *.deb (you have to fill in root's password)

Attend advice of former answers: Ask in relevant LinuxMint or Ubuntu forums!

the latest and best installed

Be aware that - at the moment - version 6.2.2 is for testing; the stablest one is LO 6.1.5
