How do I fix Flash issues?

Me sale esto al actualizar el sistema (apt-get update upgrade), probé usando el comando sudo dpkg --configure -a como me indica, bajando flash desde la pagina oficial y en todos los intentos me sale mismo, simplemente no pasa de ahí.

I just keep getting freeze ups, I mean the computer has about 6 hrs downloading flashplugin. every time I try to update or use dpkg to get flash.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

did you try using apt-get install or Ubuntu Software Center? –  Misery Jun 9 '12 at 5:52
Both software center and apturl options just give me the same result, is it dpkg missing something? btw thanks~ –  Crisnepita Jun 9 '12 at 6:24
Do You have such a problem only with Flash? Does other software give the same problems? –  Misery Jun 9 '12 at 8:11
Even after deleting the lock, Only flash gives me the problem. –  Crisnepita Jun 9 '12 at 19:20
try sudo apt-get purge flashplugin where flashplugin is that what You have installed. And try to install it again via apturl. If that doesn't help please try Flash::Aid –  Misery Jun 10 '12 at 15:55

In my opinion You should go to Adobe get Flash www and install it using apturl (choose Linux OS and apturl). Installation should proceed automatically. (Here I assumed x64 Ubuntu).

Please run(in a terminal) sudo dpkg --configure -a, let it finish, and then try installing again.

(I don't have accent keys) Por favor, ejecute sudo dpkg --configure -a en Terminal(Buscelo en Unity) y repite la instalacion de Flash.
