stop Opera update

Can somebody guide me on how to stop Opera v 60.0 from updating automatically. (Mint 19 ) In windows I think I had to rename the auto update exe file .

If you look in

sudo xed /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opera-stable.list

you’ll see a line like

deb https://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/ stable non-free #Opera Browser (final releases)

just comment it out, so it reads

## deb https://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/ stable non-free #Opera Browser (final releases)

and save the file.

The problem with this is Opera’s VPN is known to sometimes stop working when they release a new version … so if that’s what you use it for…

Thanks for answer Mark I don’t use Opera for it’s vpn I have a separate one.
