Bug Description

From time to time I get emails like these

Anacron job 'cron.daily' on M1

/etc/cron.daily/update-notifier-common:
flashplugin-installer: downloading http://archive.canonical.com/pool/partner/a/adobe-flashplugin/adobe-flashplugin_11.2.202.406.orig.tar.gz
Installing from local file /tmp/tmpHYwxRg.gz
Flash Plugin installed.

I do not want to be informed about these updates at all. Just do them silently.

Been looking everywhere and still do not know how to disable these anacron email notifications. Any ideas?
