No updates on Ubuntu 16.04

  • Ubuntu updates for Opera doesn’t work on Ubuntu 16.04. Error message say it can’t download, but all the over updates work and download.

  • Can you post the exact message the error says?

  • Exact message error in french : "Le téléchargement des informations du dépôt a échoué. Vérifiez votre connexion internet" Traduction : The download of deposit information failed. Verify your internet connexion.

    Thank you in advance.

  • Make sure you have a file named opera.list (or similar) in /etc/apt/sources.list.d and that this file contains this (or similar text)

    deb http://deb.opera.com/opera/ stable non-free

    If it does not, reinstall opera from its deb package here. It is the easiest option you have,instead of editing the file.

    Also, please make sure you are on the 64bit version of ubuntu 16.04. You can check that with
    uname -m
    and it should returb "x86_64".

    p.s. I say "or similar" above because I have renamed and edited my files here, e.g. opera-stable.list has become opera.list, so I no longer know their original names.
