Software center cannot install opera deb file: Internal Error
I just tried to install opera from the provided deb package. Unfortunately, software-center always displayed an “Internal Error”: “The file x could not be opened”. I checked the file is okay by installing it with dpkg, which worked fine.
See also bug 868188, the same error for the Google Chrome .deb.
