FIXED. Replying to my post. It was a browser settings problem. I fixed this way:-
In Windows ...
Go to Control Panel
Select Internet Options
Select the tab, "Advanced"
Scroll down to "Security"
Tick in boxes for:-
Use SSL 2.0
Use SSL 3.0
Use TLS 1.0
Use TLS 1.1
Use TLS 1.2
The update from Vivaldi was applied and is working .
@Etay said in Vivaldi ( Check for updates ) - through http proxy - Error : [ Appcast XML data incomplete ]:
As a programmer, I think that the proxy is not defined in the pulling updates service
( it does not use Vivaldi's main proxy but uses standalone request which does not include the proxy ) .
I will ask internally.
The updater should use the proxy settings from Windows. If that asks for a password, there should be a popup asking the user to enter one.

I assume you took my bug report
I saw your question in bug tracker. Be advised, that the bug tracker is not to be used as a personal support. If you have questions, please ask in forum.
I'll take that as a generic reminder info for the rest of the people (and nothing more), since the bug I reported was (kind of) a valid one, and I just explained why keeping track of new versions is (quote) hard (unquote) for me. (?)
BTW, just a follow up, a couple of weeks ago I discovered it was a hardware problem, there was probably a problem with my SSD, Windows scanned the disk and corrected the errors, I got 20GB of diskspace back, and after that I could install Vivaldi correctly. So perhaps this can help other people who may encounter this problem in the future.
Almost all the browsers that I have tested have their update agent running independent of the browser and not all can be disabled as it can be done in Vivaldi or warn if there is an update, just update silently.
This can be a problem if you have several browsers installed, all with the Update running, without the user noticing, unnecessarily using resources and bandwidth.
This is why I always deactivate it in the browsers I have, either in the corresponding configuration or remove them from the Start with the Task Manager, if the browser does not offer this option.
It is very easy to look from time to time in the browser menu, if there is an update available and install it if so with a simple click and when it is convenient to do so ..
@pafflick Sorry. I almost never use Windows, but I have read quite a few posts where people appeared to be asking for a feature to delay Vivaldi updates on Windows. I'm sure I could have misunderstood those issues.
@kindofscsi said in Modify update location to avoid conflicting with Enterprise policies:
//MODEDIT: Added inline code blocks for better readability
I have tested the installer on a fresh Windows 10 Install with the SRP via GPO. The installer is in fact directly affected by this as well. This would mean that any Enterprise that has deployed Temp directory Executable disablement via SRP will not be able to install the Vivaldi browser.
Exclusions for Vivaldi cannot be made in advance due to the dynamic directory structure used in both the installer and the updater.
