A week ago I noticed opera-next package in New in repository Synaptics' filter. So I installed it to test some HTML. Today I noticed that it has replaced x-www-browser alternative and tried to reproduce it but it was no longer in the repository. I don't remember enabling/disabling PPAs so it could be from official partner repository. And now it's gone. Was there some announcement about why was it removed?

opera-next was never an Ubuntu package. You got it from

(FWIW, the partner repository isn't part of Ubuntu, either, it's an add-on repository from Canonical, that doesn't obey Ubuntu's rules)

But the word opera is not present in any file under /etc/apt/ and I don't remember adding it. Are there any partner repository logs? I can't find them. – int_ua Dec 27 '11 at 15:41
dpkg and apt have logs, but don't include the URLs of the repositories – tumbleweed Dec 28 '11 at 5:32
