Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

It seems that when there is no network connectivity when upgrades are
running, (and all the packages have been downloaded), the flash player
installer uninstalls the previous version of flash, and then tries to
download the new one, seemingly from a different server.

If it can't, it quickly dumps some output to the terminal, and the
upgrade continues.

When a web page with flash is loaded, firefox asks to install flash, but
the agent reports that the flash package is already installed

This kind of breaks the usage of apt-get dist-upgrade -d...
