    Now my problem originally came from no sound and a superfast video frames on adobe flash player. I tried uninstalling adobe flash player and got the message " some parts could not be removed please remove manually" I tried to find any parts of the program on my drive however it is all locked and i cant modify the files in any way! I tried uninstalling in as many ways as i know with no result, I tried to install some other things to facilitate the uninstall and discovered that i cant install either, I cant install updates either. basically it seems like i need to uninstall the flashplayer completely before i can fix my other issues! Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Here's how to fix the "E: The package adobe-flashplugin needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it." error...

    Code:
    $ sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/adobe-flashplugin.prerm  # Deletes a troublesome config file
    $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure adobe-flashplugin --force  # Force-reconfigures adobe-flashplugin
    $ sudo dpkg --purge --force-all adobe-flashplugin  # Force-removes adobe-flashplugin
    $ sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree  # Installs flashplayer the easy way
    Good luck!

    You can use Keryx to download your .debs with dependencies from any OS!
