Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

As of now, installing the flashplugin-nonfree package results in an MD5
error which occurs during the postinstallation:

md5sum mismatch install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
The Flash plugin is NOT installed.

These lines in the postinstallation script of the flashplugin-nonfree
package need to be updated:

	# verify MD5 checksum of (copied or downloaded) tarball
	rm -rf install_flash_player_9_linux/
	echo "821cc72359a937caef85bb4cc74ef5cd  install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz"| md5sum -c > /dev/null 2>&1 \
		|| fp_exit_with_error "md5sum mismatch install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz"

	# unpacking and checking the plugin
	tar xzf install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz || fp_exit_with_error "cannot unpack plugin"
	echo "be5a2f9032f8fc8bccbbf5d96c5028f9  install_flash_player_9_linux/libflashplayer.so"| md5sum -c > /dev/null 2>&1 \
		|| fp_exit_with_error "plugin changed, not trusted"
	echo "a81fd3b03b8c6d6e5a14298110718d3f  install_flash_player_9_linux/flashplayer.xpt"| md5sum -c > /dev/null 2>&1 \
		|| fp_exit_with_error "plugin changed, not trusted"
