I had shockwave flash installed on Ubuntu 15.10 with Firefox. Now I have updated to 16.04, it appears to no longer be available. Or at least I can't find it in the usual ways. I understand it is no longer updated, but where can I get the last version available? Where is it to be found? Or should I re-install Ubuntu 15.10?
A: Shockwave Player displays content created with Adobe Director 11.5 software such as high-performance multiuser games, interactive 3D product simulations, online entertainment, and training applications. By using extensions, developers can extend the capabilities of Shockwave Player to play back custom-built applications.
Flash Player displays content created with Flash Professional CS5. This content includes web applications, website user interfaces, interactive online advertising, and rich Internet applications (RIAs) created using Flex.
Do you really need Shockwave or only Flash plugin?

Start by doing: sudo apt purge --remove adobe-flashplugin flashplugin-installer pepperflashplugin-nonfree (to remove older versions of flashplugin and pepperflashplugin.
Then do: sudo apt install browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash . If you get any message of a missing file or any error message, go to http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/adobe-flashplugin , select "adobe-flashplugin" 32 or 64-bit deb package and select to open it with "software install(default)".
