Comment 98 for bug 585940

OK, found a reason. adobe-flashplugin is not present in the partner archive for the amd64 architecture http://archive.canonical.com/dists/maverick/partner/binary-amd64/Packages
however it is there for the i386 http://archive.canonical.com/dists/maverick/partner/binary-i386/Packages
which means the "go to youtube, get bounced to adobe, use apturl" method of installing flash is broken on 64 bit, even if flash itself when installed via flashplugin-installer is actually fine.
