2021-05-16 14:39:39 +0200 marked best answer LOF 7.0 not starting (corrupt bootstraprc)

After LOF update to 1:7.0.1~rc2-0ubuntu0.18.04.1 (from PPA ppa.launchpad.net/libreoffice/ppa/ubuntu bionic, context is Ubuntu Mate 18.4.05, fully updated), I get a msgbox stating:

The application cannot be started. The configuration file /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/bootstraprc is corrupt

I've tried reinstalling, after a remove/purge, to no avail. bootstraprc contains:

 [Bootstrap]
 InstallMode=<installmode>
 ProductKey=LibreOffice 7.0
 UserInstallation=$SYSUSERCONFIG/libreoffice/4

and, fwiw, SYSUSERCONFIG is not defined.

Any suggestion is greatly appreciated, TIA.
