    Error installing updates

    Hi,

    Everytime i update my Lubuntu 12.04, I get the followong error.

    Failure to download extra data files

    The following packages requested additional data downloads after package installation, but the data could not be downloaded or could not be processed.

    ttf-mscorefonts-installer, flashplugin-installer

    The download will be attempted again later, or you can try the download again now. Running this command requires an active Internet connection.
    While all the other update packages are downloaded these two are always left out. I dont have ms core fonts in word and my flash videos do not play most of the time. I have already installed flash aid add on. Help me.

    I had the same Problem and the solution was this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge ttf-mscorefonts-installer
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
