Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

The message given when i try to update or use the synaptic package manager, they state: "The package flashplugin-nonfree needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
E: Internal error opening cache (1). Please report." After this the update manager will shut down and not update the system with the newly downloaded updates.
This happened when I upgraded from Ubuntu 8.04 to 10.04
