I'm experiencing this problem in Dapper.
The analysis presented above does not match what I observe.
Here's the problem that I'm experiencing, as far as I can make out:
It is in /usr/sbin/update-flashplugin .
The wget does manage to download the file (the log, just as listed above, includes the "done" message).
The script checks that the md5sum for the downloaded file matches one wired into the script itself. This fails. Why? Probably because Adobe has updated the file (duh).
Wired-in checksum: a18532c8457f1140964c4d896a928c96
Checksum on file I downloaded today: 3a72f45a173126181022cff9029a1bb3
There are other checksum tests too. Look at all the lines containing
"md5sum" in the script.
Fix: update the wired-in checksums OR think of some more robust
alternative authenticator. Get Adobe to sign the files?
