I don't think the version is the problem, this has worked for a long
time, even before OpenOffice existed.

If you check Import Text Only, you will get no formatting.

A quick rundown on the process:

Create/select a text frame.
Right-click on the frame, choose Get Text.
A file dialog appears. By default, it should be searching for all sorts
of text files, including .odt files. Importer should say Automatic.
Find your file, click Ok.
You should then get another dialog labeled OpenDocument Importer Options
to specify what to do with styles. Make your choices, click Ok.
