Opera stopped being able to even launch

I've been using Opera on my Mac for the last six months or so without any issues.
However, last Saturday (Dec 30, 2017), it crashed and won't launch again.
I've tried uninstalling and re-installing, without any success.
I went to the FTP site and tried installing an older version of Opera (ver. 49.0.2725.34) that works fine. However, it kicks off the auto-updater and automatically updates, and then won't launch again.
Any help in troubleshooting is much appreciated!

Ruining this command from Terminal blocks the AutoUpdate.
- defaults write com.operasoftware.Opera OPDisableAutoUpdate true
About why the latest update broke the start up, I don't know.
You should try with a clean install or wait for the next update (despite that it's not assuring to fix the problem.)
For the clean profile, look at here.
Windows 10 (x64) | Anniversary Update
Opera Stable · Beta · Developer
Opera Test profile | Opera Back up Linux · Mac · Win
