package flashplugin-nonfree 10.0.1.218+really9.0.262.0ubuntu1 failed to install/upgrade: ErrorMessage: there is no script in the new version of the package - giving up (Because I had run code to get around previous bug, now the update manager fix will not install?)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

This is the code I used when I had the previous flashplugin problem:

sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/flashplugin-nonfree.post*
sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/flashplugin-nonfree.pre*
sudo dpkg --purge --force all flashplugin-nonfree

That worked, but now when I use update manager my flashplayer does not work and I have to reinstall it from Abobe.

Thanks for your report.

The workaround you used simply allow you to remove the package but doesn't fix the problem with the 'alternatives' during an upgrade. You're still experiencing the same bug as before and I'm going to mark this one as duplicate.
A developer has been notified of the problem and is working on it.
