As it says on the error, you cannot mix the MSI and C2R version of Office 2013 (you seem to have Lync basic or the VL/MSI installed). Getting the MSI install version of ODfB seems nearly impossible nowadays, but you can try the steps in this article:

Thanks Vasil.

I assumed that the version available from was, in fact, the MSI package but on closer inspection, the file - Setup.x86.en-us_GrooveRetail_3V9N8-W93CC-FQPB8-Y9WVF-TVGJ3_TX_PR_.exe - is identical to what's available from the Sync option on the my site page.

I'll go through the directions at the link you provided and report back.
