First you save the tar not open it with it with achieve manager. Recommend save to home folder.

Use the command Manual binary install or reverting to a previous version from https://calibre-ebook.com/download_linux

Run in a terminal replaced path/to/downloaded with your path.
Code:
sudo mkdir -p /opt/calibre && sudo rm -rf /opt/calibre/* && sudo tar xvf /path/to/downloaded/calibre-tarball.txz -C /opt/calibre && sudo /opt/calibre/calibre_postinstall
On my pc it looks like this:

Code:
sudo mkdir -p /opt/calibre && sudo rm -rf /opt/calibre/* && sudo tar xvf /home/xxxxxxxx**/calibre-3.99.7-x86_64.txz -C /opt/calibre && sudo /opt/calibre/calibre_postinstall
**my username.

This will install over the calibre 3.47, to revert just reinstall 3.47/7 in the regular way.
