I have had this "Failed to download package files" window popping up regarding flashplugin-installer for a long time now. I have tried "sudo apt-get remove --purge flashplugin installer" and then installing it again etc. to no avail, the window always pops back up and there is no libflashplayer.so anywhere. Apt-get says: flashplugin-installer: downloading http://archive.canonical.com/pool/partner/a/adobe-flashplugin/adobe-flashplugin_18.104.22.1680.orig.tar.gz
Which does not seem to exist. Weirdly apt-get does not give off any errors when installing flashplugin-installer even though that file seems non-existant and the installation seems to fail since I get no libflashplayer.so anywhere. I have tried apt-get update but it does not help.
Why is apt-get trying to download a non-existant file and how can I fix this? I'd rather not install flash outside the package manager.
I'm using Ubuntu 13.10.
