A failed flash update borked flash for Youtube. I can see flash movies off my hard drive but Youtube doesn't work anymore. Basically I'm computing out of China and my VPN only runs out of firefox, not for the updates. If some server or another is blocked by the CCP this can happen.
So now what happens is Software Center cannot remove it, sudo dpkg --configure -a does not finish the install, as I can't connect to the adobe server,
find /var/lib/dpkg/alternatives/*flash* -type f -size 0 | xargs sudo rm -f
(as I don't really know where the file is)...
find: "/var/lib/dpkg/alternatives/*flash*": File o directory non esistente
sudo dpkg -r --force-remove-reinstreq flashplugin-nonfree
Basically I want to remove the current flash install completely and reinstall from the tar.gz file I downloaded from Adobe's website (this way the upgrade happens and the CCP block has no effect).
dpkg: qualche altro processo detiene il blocco sul database di stato (some other process is blocking this from running)
Thanks to anyone who cares
