I am just trying to find out whether the problem is in caco-oj6-jre (which I
do belive - OOo never supported cacao as JVM)

Well, the registration of the extension failed, probably because it didn't
get properly deregistered in your purge/removal attempt.
Try the following:
dpkg -P openoffice.org-writer2latex
/usr/lib/openoffice/program/unopkg remove --shared org.openoffice.legacy.writer2latex.uno.pkg
Then try to install it again.
