    can't remove package to reinstall

    Any suggestions. Running 10.04. How can I have Ubuntu scan my HD to see if that's the problem.

    sudo apt-get install -f
    [sudo] password for ______ :
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree

    The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
    java-common odbcinst libnss3-dev sun-java6-bin unixodbc odbcinst1debian1
    sun-java6-jre libnspr4-dev
    Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
    The following packages will be REMOVED:
    adobe-flashplugin
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    1 not fully installed or removed.
    After this operation, 10.4MB disk space will be freed.

    Removing adobe-flashplugin ...

    update-alternatives: error: no alternatives for iceape-flashplugin.
    dpkg: error processing adobe-flashplugin (--remove):
    subprocess installed pre-removal script returned error exit status 2
    postinst called with argument `abort-remove'
    dpkg: error while cleaning up:
    subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    adobe-flashplugin
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)


    Addendum: If I try to download and install Adobe flash player from the web, I'm told by my
    operating system that the Software Index is Broken and it's a major failure of my software
    management system.
