Why install those ?
The only package required for flash is pepper flash.
From previous post :
The NPAPI plugin flashplugin supported DRM until version 184.108.40.2064. The PPAPI pepper-flash has never supported DRM at all. As of May 2017, there is no known way to use Flash DRM content with the current versions both plugins.
Maybe your distro is also impacted by glibc

What I did was install chrome and copied the widevine file to a different directory (cp /opt/google/chrome/libwidevinecdm.so /opt/widevine/), then edited /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/resources/widevine_config.json to preload that new location. Then proceeded to purge google chrome and it kept working on opera.
Hope this can help

@zibi1981 Widevine has worked again for a while on Linux in Opera. Netflix still wasn't working but Netflix fixed the issue themselves on 5/23/2019 and it was confirmed fixed by Opera. Also, this user confirmed it's fixed on Ubuntu for example. Proprietary codecs are still working correctly in Opera too. see <https://www.reddit.com/r/operabrowser/comments/bcjpne/howto_opera_60_h264_in_ubuntu_1404/ for example. Things have been tested on the page you mention too.

It all has to do with "libffmpeg.so" included with opera for Linux.
Replace it with this one - > https://github.com/iteufel/nwjs-ffmpeg-prebuilt/releases/
Once replaced you will have h264 and widevine support.
I looked everywhere to fix widevine support, but once I found out how to fix h264 that widevine (AFAIK) requires, everything started working.
It's too bad Opera hasn't fix this or doesn't care...
I hope this helps..
