VPN is unsupported on your current version of Opera.

  • I have just installed Opera: "45.0.2552.898 - Opera is up to date". I turn on VPN and try to navigate to any webpage. I get the message:

    Browser upgrade required
    VPN is unsupported on your current version of Opera.
    Please upgrade to the newset version of Opera to continue using the VPN service.

    When I click "Download Now", it wants to download the same deb file that I've already got! (opera-stable_45.0.2552.898_i386.deb)

    I'm running Debian GNU/Linux 9.3 (stretch).
    sudo apt update/upgrade/dist-upgrade all tell me that I'm up-to-date.

    How can I fix this? Downloading the same file again seems rather silly...

  • You didn't mention - you are running 32-bit Linux. That's why you are stuck with 45. Opera no longer owns the Easysurf VPN service. New versions of Opera are using Opera's own servers to provide VPN service. I have no idea if they'll issue an update to 45 to fix the issue for 32-bit Linux, but that is what would be required. Until (if) they do, the VPN will no longer work.

  • Ok. That makes sense. Perhaps the error message could say that 32 bit linux is not supported, rather than asking me to download it again?
