To help keep your version of Opera up-to-date, with the latest features and important security and stability fixes, Opera includes an automatic update mechanism.
The auto-update dialog appears after a recommended update has been released. The browser also checks for updates at regular intervals and displays this auto-update dialog as a reminder if you have not yet updated. It includes information about the update, and helps you to install it.
If you are using a Debian-based Linux distribution (such as Ubuntu), an Opera source is included in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ when you install Opera. Thereafter, you can update Opera via the package manager.
Auto-update preferences are saved in Advanced Preferences, under Security.
