cannot get updates for opera


After the command: "sudo apt-get updates && sudo apt-get upgrade", I get the error "Failed to connect to deb.opera.com".

I cannot connect to the site deb.opera.com in the browser.

My questions is: what is wrong?

Do I need to do something with the /var/lib/apt/lists/ to get the correct updates?

Which opera related entry is in your sources.list and did you add the archive key?

sources.list entry:
Code:
#Third Parties Repos
#The Opera .deb Repository
http://deb.opera.com/opera/ stable non-free
Extra action to take after adding the opera entry:
Code:
wget -O - http://deb.opera.com/archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
You need to do this just once.

It must have been the server. Because everything works fine now. Thank you for answering, druuna.

That can happen.

You're welcome.

BTW: Can you put up the [SOLVED] tag (upper right hand corner or the Thread Tools menu).
