I suspect that the Google warning refers to the problem, now resolved,
of being unable to install flashplugin-nonfree because Adobe overwrote
the previous, known-working tarball on their website with a new security
fix version which had the side effect of being incompatible with
The current problem being described is a new error, specific to amd64,
which is not an architecture supported by Adobe at all; getting the
official Flash plugin to work on 64-bit Linux is several layers of
kludges, and getting it to work at all is an accomplishment to either be
proud of or frightened by, depending on your viewpoint.
The particular issue that prevented flashplugin-nonfree from installing
in this case was separately reported against ia32-libs as bug #180478, a
result of a missing 32-bit lib in the compatibility layer. This was
resolved on 11 Mar at the latest, and currently the flashplugin-nonfree
package installs successfully on amd64. I'm therefore marking this bug
as 'fix released'.
** Changed in: flashplugin-nonfree (Ubuntu)
Status: Confirmed => Fix Released
