This is what I get when I give the command
demian@demian-N61PC-M2S:~$ sudo apt-get install opera
[sudo] password for demian:
Reading package lists... 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
What should the next step be?

Sorry man. I thought you had to go and this guy wasn't gonna have anyone to help hime. Kinda dumb I know. I'm not familiar w/ proxy stuff but I did notice he has two items listed in his output rather than one and that the ip's aren't identical. Just didn't want to mislead on something I'm not absolutely certain about.

Why not just install Chromium from the Software Center instead of Opera? It would be less of a hassle in my opinion. Go into the Software Center and search for Chromium. If you want to install it from Terminal, run the following:
Code:sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
If this is a nameserver issue, you should see in the statusbar of firefox the message 'Looking up .....' for a long time. If that's the case, you're on the right track. If not, I doubt that resolving hostnames is the issue.
If you don't make backups of your important data, your data is obviously not important to you.
I changed the numbers but the problem is still there.
