new style no next_style box

Linux mint 20 Cinnamon 64 bit.
When creating a new style, after the name there should be a Next_style box.
I get the name box and then the Inherit from box but no Next_style box.
This lesson shows this box.
Subsequently no page styles are applied, I need background image.
This problem was experienced on Mint 19.3 as well. upgrading did not resolve it.
How do I resolve this?

  • Which LibreOffice version?
  • Which package repository (Mint’s default, PPA, TDF[])?
  • Are you sure creating a new Page Style or are you in fact defining a new Character Style, which has no Next Style?

My Mint 20 shows

using (package repository for my installation is

My actions are:

On Panel on the right that opens, Click on Page Style Icon on top.
Right click on Default , new Page Style box is displayed.
I can give it a New name but nothing is saved.
