I had an earlier version of Libre Office (I think it was something like 188.8.131.52, or similar - installed within the last couple of months, with no hassles) installed on my HP all-in-one desktop running W10, and was using Draw when a notification that there was an update to 6.4.2 available. So I took it, and downloaded the .msi file.
Part way through the install a message came up about not having the rights to install some part of the app, so I back-tracked, and found a way to install via the admin level command line - it seems to have installed but now I can’t get into the folder to access the .exe file to run the program, and I can’t delete the program folder, and can’t uninstall it. And it’s not showing up as installed in the Control Panel. And the folder is showing 0 bytes, and 0 files!!
It’s saying that I don’t have administrator permission to install, or access the folder!
I have the 2019 MS Office Home and Student installed on the computer - could this have caused the malfunction?
Any other options to delete the new version, and get back to the old version of Libre Office, which was running fine.
Try rebooting. Read the FAQ.

I have a similar problem with “dead” folders in Windows 10.
I can only offer you a general problem solution here.
Take a look at it. Ah, see @mikekaganski’s comment.
In very tough cases, you won’t be able to avoid using a cleanup tool.
