(SOLVED) Flashplugin-installer
« on: October 29, 2013, 07:52:21 am »
Re installed Mint 4 recently.  I keep getting this message.

Failure to download extra data files

The following packages requested additional data downloads after package installation, but the data could not be downloaded or could not be processed.

flashplugin-installer

The download will be attempted again later, or you can try the download again now.  Running this command requires an active Internet connection.


If run the command:

flashplugin-installer: downloading http://archive.canonical.com/pool/partner/a/adobe-flashplugin/adobe-flashplugin_11.2.202.310.orig.tar.gz

it just sits there doing nothing.  When I re boot the same notice comes up again.

Any thoughts?
