Hum, you're using Adobe/Macromedia Flash player, right ? (as I see r48)
So, this bug has been opened against the bad package

From command line, cna you try this and report back the resulting output ?:

sudo apt-get remove --purge flashplugin-nonfree

and then

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

Thank you.

Changed in flashplugin-nonfree:
assignee: nobody → magicfab
status: New → Incomplete

Ah, found the bug report about this. Marking as duplicate. Unfortunately there is no fix yet, Adobe has updated their versions which results in a mismatch in MD5 sum and this unsuccesful install.
