    Installing Flash Player?

    So I started installing it on my own so I could try to learn a little more about linux. I got about halfway through and got stuck and was going to finish the next day then when I was using firefox it poped up something saying it would install the flash player for me so I tried it and here is my problem.

    When I try and install with the update manager it says: You have 1 broken package on your system!

    Use the "Broken" filter to locate it.

    and then says: E: /var/cache/apt/archives/nspluginwrapper_1.1.2-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb: trying to overwrite `/usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/i386/linux/npviewer.bin', which is also in package nspluginwrapper-i386

    also when I try to fix the broken package with the synaptic package manager it says the same thing.

    I have tried to force overwrite but I'm not sure if I am doing it properly.

    you can use the command
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install -f
    To fix the broken packages.
    Life and love are like a game of connect-the-dots.

    Did that and got the same thing:
    Unpacking replacement nspluginwrapper ...
    dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/nspluginwrapper_1.1.2-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb (--unpack):
    trying to overwrite `/usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/i386/linux/npviewer.bin', which is also in package nspluginwrapper-i386
    dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
    Errors were encountered while processing:

    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
