Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

Now that I have reported two trivial errors involving the adobe
flashplayer and the adobe flashplayer plugin for Firefox I have received
and error message that says "Could not install the upgrades  The
installation is now aborted.  Your system could be in an unusable state.
A recovery will run now (dpkg --configure -a).

After 5 1/2 hours of baby sitting the "automated" upgrade process from
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS the process is aborting and running
recovery over a trivial piece of non-essential add-on software readily
available from it's distributor.  This is unacceptable in what should be
the stable long term production level software.  Distinguishing between
essential to operate and trivial add-on is not that tough.  If it isn't
yours and was added after your O/S was installed it is trivial.  Tell
the user they will need to go get it and install it manually.
