Problem:Today after regular system updates I received a following message when I opened a flash required webpage in Firefox "install latest version of adobe flash plugin"
I went to the software centre. It was showing as already installed. So I reinstalled it. On reinstalling it was showing a message that plugin is not available in the archive therefore could not be installed.
i manually tried to access the archive and got 'page could not be found'
Not Found The requested URL /pool/partner/a/adobe-flashplugin/adobe-flashplugin_22.214.171.124.orig.tar.gz was not found on this server. Apache/2.2.14 (Ubuntu) Server at archive.canonical.com Port 80
Execute this Command on terminal and all will happen :
