Shouldn't the first one noticing this failed d/l file a bugreport instead of installing flashplugin-nonfree manually (I did now)?

Ok, you can't code, but you still might be able to write a bug report for Debian's sake

Code: [Select]
cp -r /usr/* /[code]
is there a way back?

Look into the folder /usr, that was extracted from the installer, and remove those bits from your / directory.
This looks ugly, sorry to say, but seems to be necessary. Please read carefully and compare with the content of the package and the files and folders you have.
Code: [Select]
rm /libflashplayer.so
rm /readme.txt
rm  /bin/flash-player-properties
rm -rf /lib/kde4
rm -rf /lib64/kde4
rm -rf /share

I ran the update and had the same result as michaaa62, the update failed to retrieve the new file from people.debian.org, but, I see no reason to remove or revert anything, flash seems to be working fine.

# update-flashplugin-nonfree --status |grep Flash
Flash Player version installed on this system  : 11.2.202.336
Flash Player version available on upstream site: 11.2.202.341

The update, for me, just didn't work, but didn't change anything.  It seems that any installing that it did was from the previous update.   Is anyone having trouble with flash?  If so, could you provide a link to the site where the problem occurs?

When I want to check flash, I go to this site and hit any one of the previews to check it out.

Well yeah, the update is needed to close a security hole, that wasn't my point.  My point was that removing files wasn't needed.  Performing the update didn't break anything, it just didn't work.  I'm sure the Debian maintainer will have this fixed quickly.

@GoinEasy9:
For clarification: the removal list is for the error only, that Jeedee happen to make while copying stuff. Anyone else should not have those files and folders at that places in te file system.

i wonder, is it not better to mark the posting in question accordingly (like "danger, do not do this!", so that not so experienced users do not make things worse with copying files from somewhere as root?

my point is, we here in the forum (and especially in the upgrade warnings section), try to support people in such a way that their system stays consistent and upgradeable through apt... this rapid shooting with essentially bad advise might do additional harm...

just my opinion

No, if someone has screwed up their system and needs custom advice to fix it, it's better for them to make their own thread (or have it split off by a moderator) to avoid this kind of confusion. It wasn't bad advice to the person it was meant for...
