this command is no loger working.. i get the following message after typing it in:


Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package opera is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package opera has no installation candidate


it isnt even available in the ubuntu software center..

it can be downloaded from opera.com though..

so what im asking why is it not in the ubuntu source? did opera request a removal so that it can only be downloaded via the website?

P.S. I entered the command: "sudo apt-get update"

I don't think it ever has been. (unless you added the repository)

A search at packages.ubuntu.com reveals nothing.

Yep, so all is well ?

Ubuntu have never served Opera - you need to download/install it manually.

Opera is/used-to-be in the Partner repository, but you might as well just download it from Opera.com. Their Deb package automatically adds their repository to your system so you can keep your browser up-to-date.

The link is for 64bit. It should work w/ ubuntu too, though. Mint has a nice addition of repositories, but the feel is that of MS and drives me bonkers

Your link is broken for me, in both Firefox and Chrome.

Edit : & Opera as well :)

All Linux Opera downloads can be gotten from here.
