Bug Description

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

I upgraded to 10.04 using the update console. Everyting worked except for FlashPlugin-nonfree. Dpkg claimed that the package was in a very inconsistent state and should be reinstalled before removal. I could not get it to reinstall with dpkg. I also could not get it removed even using --force-reinstall-required. It would start the removal and then fail.
