    Question Can't remove/ purge /install opera

    I have a bug of sorts. Opera is holding up any upgrades??

    I have tried anything I know beside reinstalling the box.
    I've tried to remove / purge from your system.

    devbox01 k # sudo dpkg --configure -a
    devbox01 k # sudo apt-get --fix-broken install

    does nothing

    devbox01 k # sudo apt-get purge opera

    | Using a ppa ? Please install ppa-purge from universe, you may need it should you want to revert packages back |
