I have never seen apt-cache policy before, that is a cool tool!
Anyway, here is the result of mine for flash:
$ apt-cache policy flashplugin-nonfree
500 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com jaunty/multiverse Packages
Despite it saying that none is installed, I can still play any flash
content in Swiftfox (which I use instead of Firefox).
The live BBC News feed worked perfectly.
So you may have an earlier version of Flash. I previously had a version
that worked on some sites but not all, even though it was version
10.something, but it was a 64-bit version. Now I have a version which is
10.0.22.87, not sure if 32- or 64-bit. Maybe if you are using the 64-bit
Ubuntu the Flash version you have is not working properly? I had the
problem in Ubuntu 8.04, but no problem after I did a new install using
9.04 and copied my files/settings over from 8.04.
