    Delete it.

    Then ..

    Code:
    gksudo gedit status
    5b) remove all references to adobe-flasplugin. Save/close.

    Do the same as above - looking for the same thing.

    Then ..

    Code:
    cd info
    Then..

    Code:
    sudo rm -r adobe-flashplugin
    Now, I didn't find anything on my system in /var/lib/info - so don't be worried if you don't !!


    /edit Hmmm... I issued a sudo rm -r command - these are not good. PLEASE BE REALLY CAREFUL.

    Bravo! Been on this for an hour now since the upgrade (didn't even try to download flash it just auto-corrupted since the upgrade from jaunty) and you've solved it.

    Much obliged,
