[Bug 429841] Re: broken packaging: package flashplugin-nonfree failed to install/upgrade: (breaks upgrade)

I am upgrading from Hardy to Lucid. Unfortunately Emanuel Greisen's fix
does not work for me.
sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/flashplugin-nonfree.prerm
is fine, but
sudo dpkg –remove –force-remove-reinstreq flashplugin-nonfree
dpkg: need an action option
I don't know this program well -- how can I give an action option?
(Isn't -remove an action option? Is my installation of dpkg broken in
some way too?)
Also, I should point out that those of us upgrading straight from Hardy
to Lucid are probably the ones who least enjoy picking through bug
reports. I have the impression that if I had enabled hardy-proposed
first (?) then this would not have happened, and certainly if I'd
uninstalled flashplugin-nonfree first this would not have happened.
Someone should make this clear in the documentation for this upgrade!
Thanks for all your help.
