"This installation package could not be opened."

Right, 2.4b2.  I never updated to 2.4 on that box.

OK, the problem was:  I rushed the install.  The package had not finished
downloading, but the icon appears on the desktop as soon as the download
starts.  (With Opera you have to pay attention to the download status, it's
rather subtle.)

If I wait for the download to complete and the virus check to finish, then
it's AOK.  That's why the third time was the charm.
