[Solved]Opera Not Updating

  • When I click on "About Opera" the window opens and it says it's checking for updates. After checking for 2 or so minutes it usually says, "An error occurred while checking for updates"
    Sometimes it actually says that an update is available, but it doesn't provide anything to click on to install the update. I'm copying and pasting examples of both below. Any clues or advice is appreciated. Thanks.

    EXAMPLE 1:
    Version information

    Version: 37.0.2178.43 - An error occurred while checking for updates
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows 8.1 64-bit (WoW64)
    Browser identification

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/50.0.2661.94 Safari/537.36 OPR/37.0.2178.43

    Paths

    Install: C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera
    Profile: C:\Users\Bob\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable

  • Try downloading and installer from the website and installing over the existing copy.

  • That was too easy. Thank you, lando242!
