Yes I'm aware I could install a snap package and do not care at this time to do so.

@themanjay The Recommends will be ignored if not available, it is only that one Depends which is blocking it (and honestly I don't know why they would recommend Flash when Chromium no longer supports it). Not familiar with Debian based distros myself as my distro uses RPM, but wanted to make sure that much was clear.

@sgunhouse yes I am aware the recommends will be ignored if not available. debian buster (which is still supported) uses gcc 8 by default. That package is available in debian bullseye the latest release with gcc 10. I do not know if any additional features added with Opera version 88 can be compiled to run with gcc 8 libraries,

Debian Buster 10 will drop normal support in July. It's probably time to upgrade to Bullseye 11.
I had the same thing happening with Linux Mint 17 a few years ago before it reached EOL.

Hello! Following worked for me:
Download and install one by one the packages gcc-10-base and libgcc-s1, after that upgrade to Opera 88 works.
