Inkit, open synaptic and do a search for openoffice.
yes, you'll see a lot of pkgs showing up, but most of them are transitional pkgs openoffice/libreoffice or pkgs where the branding and/or openoffice reference is still kept.
what matters (at least i believe so) is that the office suite you have installed is libreoffice.
