    Flash Player apt-get failure

    Code:
    Package flashplugin-nonfree is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package flashplugin-nonfree has no installation candidate
    is what I get whenever I try to "sudo apt-get flashplugin-nonfree".
    I really am a newbie, this is just about the only cmd-line thing I know.
    EDIT:
    oh and also when I try to use the add/remove thing, it throws this error at me "Amarok cannot be installed on your computer type (i386)", and Synaptic throws another strange error at me.

    I do not use Ubuntu any more, nor have I ever used Gnome. Therefore, I tend to give advice that is distro- and DE-agnostic, which, while perhaps not the easiest way, will allow you to move freely between machines.

    I think my link will be more helpful, as psychocats has outlined everything very well.
