Dunno what Google are playing at here, but they've taken it on themselves to block the tracker for this bug:

PCNetSpec's update fixed mrs.perknh's  apt-get update.  Apparently this bug is not affecting Opera browser either in 64-bit Peppermint. :)

Thank you, PCNetSpec
[T]here are a lot of people happily running Peppermint ICE which hasn't been receiving ANY updates for a while now .. and I personally would STILL consider that MUCH more secure than any version of Windows with up-to-date AV/Anti-malware ;)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Opera based on Chromium nowadays?  Also, isn't Chromium still available in 32 bit?  I don't imagine that anything that the closed source Chrome project does would that greatly affect Opera, as it's based on the open source Chromium project.

Like I said, they don't want to hear it.  ::)  It's that way with most software giants.  They give you the opportunity to report bugs and problems, they just don't guarantee that they'll actually give a hoot or try at all to fix them.  Because, you know, they know everything, especially what is best for their users.  ::)
