I made some progress, I tried out docx and it failed I went back to doc
format in in the message buffer, the following lines

Executing soffice --headless --convert-to doc:"MS Word 97" --outdir 

Export to /home/oub/tex/Proy-MTM-2016/LaTeX-org/cv-libre.doc failed

Indicate that it fails again, but I don't understand why.

I tried rtf and got

Executing soffice --headless --convert-to doc:"MS Word 97" --outdir 

Export to /home/oub/tex/Proy-MTM-2016/LaTeX-org/cv-libre.doc failed

He also claims that the directory
/home/oub/tex/Proy-MTM-2016/LaTeX-org/rft does not exist. Why the heck
he needs it is beyond me.

What I understand is that he uses soffice, which is the official old
version from my ubuntu version, I have newer versions which I installed
in /opt/libreoffice4.3 and /opt/libreoffice5.1.

How can I tell org to use those?
