Bug Description

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

Problem started while upgrading from 8.04.1 to 9.10. Original version of flashplugin-nonfree had an issue & all attempts to correct failed. Unable to even re-install with Synaptic. Need a clean copy for install, I think. Need your help. I'm primarily a hardware tech.
