Ubuntu – Failure to download extra data files: flashplugin-installer


Today after finishing the update i got update information

enter image description here

I have tried clicking on run action now, but by that nothing happens only terminal opens up and then after minute it automatically closes down.

NOTE:I have seen question related to this, but not sure to use solution as there was pepflashplugin installer while in my case it is only flashplugin installer

I had the same problem and have fixed it with the following two steps from the command line:

  1. Removing flashplugin-installer completely with the following command

    sudo apt-get remove --purge flashplugin-installer
  2. Re-installing flashplugin-installer again with the command

    sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
