Matt,

Waiting is the first option. For those who don't want to wait, there is the DIY approach. I've done the 64-bit install multiple times (different systems) with no problems. YMMV.

Long-term solutions are either to accept the periodic breakage, for Ubuntu to relax the checks (which they don't want to do) or for Adobe to maintain their own repository for Ubuntu, which they already do for Fedora. There have been many requests to Adobe to do so, although I am not aware of a positive response from the company.

But *today* the choices are either wait for the updated package or install manually.
