I agree it is a pain, and happens everytime there is a new release. What's the big deal for them to wait an extra week or so before releasing the update so that it won't be a broken package. I like my Opera browser for certain functions, but I am getting used to Brave and it seems to be working fine right now.
And to the Opera developers...... quit releasing these broken updates, nobody is going to use a broken browser.
I wholeheartedly second this.
