I recently received an upgrade for the flash plugin through the package manager. I've installed it. Flash then requires a reboot and running a post installation step. I've been having trouble with this last step.
Whenever I login I can see an item in my notification bar that asks to install other packages to make flash work. This is what comes out when clicking it:
I press OK and then I insert my password to run the installation and it fails:
If I try to click on Details>> nothing happens.
Since the first time that this thing happened I get warnings when using flash on firefox (it says that the plugin is obsolete or something like that).
How can I fix this? Is there a way to run the above step from the command line and check what's going on and the cause of the error?
This is not a duplicate of: Adobe Flash Plugin is vulnerable/outdated in 14.04 but there is no update in Firefox
In that question:
- The problem is not due to an update release (i.e. the user does have installed the latest plugin; not so for me)
- The problem is caused by a wrong version comparison
In my case I do not have installed the latest version, and this process fails.
