FWIW, on my 32-bit Dell with M17.3 Cinnamon I installed LO 5.3.4.2 with the LibreOffice *.deb - it installed and is running perfectly. I did completely uninstall the repository version beforehand and would not try to install over the top of an older version:

The Mint 17.3 repository now shows libreoffice core 1:5.3.4-0ubuntu0.14.04.1~lo0

(I'm only testing M18.2 on a thumb drive so would never install or update anything big on that format.)
TRUST BUT VERIFY any advice from anybody, including me. Ubuntu / Mint user since 10.04 LTS. M17.3 Cinnamon (Dell 1520). Dual booting M17.3 XFCE / W7 (Acer netbook) and M18.2 Cinnamon / W7 (Lenovo desktop). Testing M18.3 64bit on persistent live USB.
