Bug Description

There should be a transaction to fix a broken cache (equally to apt-get install -f)

Binary package hint: firefox-3.5

When I press the button "Install Selected" the following text is shown:" E:Ich konnte keine Datei für Paket adobe-flashplugin finden. Das könnte heißen, dass Sie dieses Paket von Hand korrigieren müssen". When I want to worke with the software manager I get the this messig "Es ist ein unerwarteter Fehler aufgetreten bitte melden Sie das Problem mit der Fehlerbeschreibung. Details: Error Type: Error Value: E:The package adobe-flashplugin needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it. File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/apt/, line 1952, in main() File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/apt/, line 1949, in main run(args, options.single) File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/apt/, line 1911, in run backend.dispatcher(args) File : /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/packagekit/, line 636, in dispatcher self.dispatch_command(args[0], args[1:]) File : /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/packagekit/, line 598, in dispatch_command self.search_group(options, searchterms) File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/apt/, line 515, in search_group self._check_init(progress=False) File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/apt/, line 1672, in _check_init self._cache.clear() File : /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/apt/, line 329, in clear self._depcache.Init()

If i want to search something the following text is shown: "Der Prozess für das Protokoll nepomuksearch wurde unerwartet beendet"

If you want, you can try the Debian version of PackageKit (but please wait a little until rev2 of the package which will bring some important improvements)
