I looked at the link you furnished. In my case, however, the error is
seemingly caused by a non-existing option in nspluginwrapper, although I
cannot find the script, calling nspluginwrapper.
It says After the line:" Flash Plugin installed."
"invalid option -n"
" nspluginwrapper, configuration tool. Version 1.0.0"
Of course without the quotes and with the standard nspluginwrapper
helptext on the dots.
Hereafter the mentioned dpkg error message.
Hope this gives some extra information.
