“Origin changed” error message when running apt-get update

  • If you’re on Debian or Ubuntu and are using Opera’s official repositories for desktop, you might have received the following error while updating your system:

    E: The repository 'https://deb.opera.com/opera-developer stable InRelease' has changed its 'Origin' value from 'Opera Software ASA' to 'Opera Software AS'.
    N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See the apt-secure(8) man-page for details.
    The error simply states that Opera has changed its company name from 'Opera Software ASA' to 'Opera Software AS'.

    To fix this issue in order to continuing using this repository, run: “sudo apt update”
    You will then be prompted to accept the new Origin of the repository:
    Do you want to accept these changes and continue updating from this repository? [y/N]
    Fin.

  • log in as SU (root)

    #apt upgrade
    (some read out happens)
    #apt update

    (you should see this)

    E: Repository 'http://deb.opera.com/opera-beta stable InRelease' changed its 'Origin' value from 'Opera Software ASA' to 'Opera Software AS'
