Linux Mint 20.1 update problem.

When I notice that the update shield has a marker on it,... I click on it... and proceed to get the updates, by giving my authentication..

It then shows me..>...  "Downloading Package information.... 

After a couple of seconds I get this screen...

When I click on "Close".... updates are downloaded and installed.... ...

After install... I get....

 

update problem 2.png

 

so why am I being told to check my network connection... and what do I need to do to stop this message ?

Fix

There seems to be a problem with the Opera repository public key and so the update system cant access it for the moment. All other updates seem to be ok. Its happened before https://forums.opera.com/topic/22315/ubuntu-apt-get-is-telling-me-pubkey-not-available/2 and is probably just a temporary problem.

Re: Linux Mint 20.1 update problem.

@MisterW   Yeah... I noticed this for some time now... presumed it was to do with Open Office running on WINE, rather than on Linux proper debs install...  have removed OO on Wine... and done the full install of it using the Terminal command line stuff.

 

So.. it looks like you may be right.. I do have Opera installed... but rarely use it...  so maybe I`ll just unistall it... and things should be back to "normal" with luck..

Thanks for the help.
