Install stable version of Opera with VPN on Ubuntu 16.04
Since version 40, Opera has offered a built-in VPN solution in their browser: "In April, Opera added a free, unlimited VPN to the developer edition of its browser. Now, the company has brought that same capability to the stable version of its Opera 40 desktop browser."

To install it on Ubuntu 16.04, first find the latest version of stable here, make a copy of its file name and use it later to insert in the download and install command : https://deb.opera.com/opera-developer/pool/non-free/o/opera-stable/ -- as of today it is opera-stable_43.0.2442.1144_amd64.deb.
Download the Opera install package, install Opera and delete the install package
sudo dpkg -i opera-stable_43.0.2442.1144_amd64.deb
If you answer "Yes" when the installation process asks if Opera can add a file for future updates, the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opera-stable.list is created:
# This file makes sure that Opera Browser is kept up-to-date
# as part of regular system upgrades
deb https://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/ stable non-free #Opera Browser (final releases)
This will ensure that Opera will be updated in the future, along with the other regular updates.
