  apt-helper crashed with SIGABRT in

Status in apt package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Errors Bucket

  Original Description
  After installing flashplugin-installer I get a prompt noting:
  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.


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

  Clicking the button Run this action now causes this crash

  Unfortunately, this has the negative outcome of disallowing folks who
  use Firefox from being able to update, or install Flash.

  There are a fair number of these events logged in errors.ubuntu.com.
