subprocess installed post-removal script returned error exit status 127
Errors were encountered while processing:
pdvdlinux
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Does anyone know what the above means? I was trying to install flashplayer after the computer janitor seduced me into removing it as a rarely used (?!) program. But when I attempt to reinstall, the message above is the result.

Any help appreciated.

I appreciate your help, and am feeling a bit overwhelmed. I inadvertently deleted flashplayer when prompted to do so by the computer janitor, and when attempting to reinstall it, get this error code Using the recommended code does not seem to correct the problem, but maybe I am doing something wrong so am copying and pasting the whole command prompt her, hoping for some more help:
