Opera Not Being Automatically Updated

  • I had a problem the other day in which Opera would not open any bank website. It would just loop without even going to the logon page. I checked for Opera updates and an update was downloaded. Problem went away with download.
    I had another issue this morning, checked for updates and an update was downloaded. That issue was resolved. But the issue remains that Opera is not automatically checking for and downloading updates. I don't know if there is a setting to do that - which I could check - but I have not turned off any setting in Opera relating to updates.

    Win 7
    Today's manually updated Opera release 72.0.3815.211
    Release not automatically updating today 72.0.3815.200 (don't remember previous release from the other day that did not automatically update)

  • Open up the Windows Task Scheduler, click on "Task Scheduler Library" and click on "Opera scheduled Autoupdate". Then, look on the "Triggers" tab. It should show you that an autoupdate is scheduled on system startup and at a certain time. You can delete the task and uninstall and reinstall Opera (while choosing not to delete your data) to repair task.
