I am still having a problem with a broken package. I can't do anything to it, it is the Adobe Flash plugin. There is no installer after the upgrade I made yesterday. I tried to uninstall the plug in and install the installer I get this message every time: E: flashplugin-nonfree: Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should reinstall it before attempting a removal. I tried what someone mentioned yesterday about (fix broken packages) and that didn't work.
Is there a way to take all the fire fox packages of the reinstall them or some way to fix this mess?
