Bug Description

I'm using Ubuntu 15.10 dev with flashplugin-installer and if the package got successfully downloaded but on configuring it fails to download the flash player an error is shown but the configuring does not fail. This could lead to a broken flash player setup while the user might think all is fine as apt doesn't really claim anything.

I'm noticing that the same is the case with ttf-mscorefonts-installer so maybe this is a generic problem and other downloads are affected too?
