  • I am now getting "an error occurred while checking for a new version of Opera" error when I use the "update" choice from the help menu. In the past, I would just get a note that a new version wasn't available, but I know some components got updated.

    Is this now dead in the water completely, or do I just have some intermittent connection issue?

    Well, this didn't post yesterday for whatever reason, but the upshot is the problem has disappeared. Behaves as expected. I am posting this now only in case others have/had the issue.

  • It's an usual thing, no need to worry about it. It will check for updates anyway at some moment.

    And it happens on the latest version too.

  • Thanks for that information. I have had it happen in the developer stream, but I expected it there. Just hadn't seen it in 12 ever. It was always pretty good about things, from at least 3.something onward (int he pay days!) Glad to know it's just one of those things.

  • when I use the "update" choice from the help menu.

    Works fine. Sometimes the Opera ASA server may have a hiccup. 😉
