Extension upgrade requires additional permissions...

Hidden extensions, that collect data from the websites you visit and that you can't disable, and you did not give permissions to install in the first place ???
Seriously, is this how it ends for Opera?
This is what I have after running opera with that option --....
Rich Hints Agent
Chromium PDF Viewer
News feed handler
Opera Crypto Wallet

@duncanm Hi, as several other people have mentioned, the "C:\Program Files\Opera\launcher.exe -show-component-extension-options" doesn't allow us to work it. It keeps saying "The name... specified in the Target box is not valid. Make sure the path and file name are correct"
and then when you load the entire thing into the "run" box it only opens Opera and nothing happens.
so, is this different for others?

I followed your advice, I deleted the file that had those Items, then rebotted Opera, received that same message, hit the "update" botton and now the pop-up is gone completely. Thanks, the others' advice never worked. Also, my laptop never has shown the Rich Hints Agent at all, so I guess I am lucky, or it just refuses to show anything hidden.

As far as I tested, the problem has now been fixed by the Opera developers.

What extension? What permissions? Sure I'll accept, but how?
This reminds me of the perfidious Windows bug where you might see the error message, "The system cannot find the file specified." What system? Which file? Specified by whom?
This is a bug I tell you, and I call on Opera developers / extension developers to grep through the source looking for that string. Find the code and add a sprintf() statement that would insert the name of the extension, at the very least.

Having exactly the same issue but on a Mac.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve on a Mac??
Hoping that this is a bug that will be fixed, otherwise.
Also, FYI, the folder names in my bookmarks bar are also not showing now when not an active window.
I think this latest version of Opera has COVID-19 and needs treatment.

Good day. I have a problem. Today, such a red dot appeared in the sidebar at the extension. It is said that the extensions need to be updated. But when I clicked it, I didn't see anything like that. Does anyone know what to do with it?
I also use some add-ons from the Google Store Extension

We’re sorry for that issue. It was caused by one of our internal extensions. A fix has already been released, and the message should no longer appear.
A few words about our internal extensions, as the topic raises some concerns: Hidden extensions are an integral part of the browser and all are made by Opera (none is third-party software). We use this technology to implement a variety of functionality, just as we do in the native code. Extensions simplify some tasks and allow for more flexibility (e.g. we are able to release a fix without releasing a major update). In situations when performance is not critical we consider using an extension if it’s reasonable, so the required permission is nothing to worry about.

Thanks for finally notice and inform us, but is it really 100% solved? I don't see the big drop down main extension update message, but the small red dot in the sidebar is still there. Does not help try use the update option in the developer mode in extensions. Restart the browser or also try manually update the browser does not help.
