I think I have the same problem.  In my case install of the flashplugin-
installer 11.2.202.228ubuntu3 locks up in the following processes:

root      8599  8598  0 08:53 pts/1    00:00:00 apt-get install flashplugin-installer
root      8618  8599  0 08:53 pts/2    00:00:00 /usr/bin/dpkg --status-fd 47 --unpack --auto-deconfigure /var/cache/apt/archives/flashplugin-installer_11.2.202.228ubuntu3_i386.deb
root      8628  8618  0 08:53 pts/2    00:00:00 /bin/sh /var/lib/dpkg/info/update-notifier-common.postinst triggered /usr/share/package-data-downloads
root      8629  8628  0 08:53 pts/2    00:00:00 /usr/bin/python /usr/lib/update-notifier/package-data-downloader

If I kill the last process, the installation then completes as follows:

Hope the above helps.
