I'm running Debian Jessie. I've upgraded the system with:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
Then I try to update flash-plugin with:
sudo update-flashplugin-nonfree --install
But the command runs without output and the plugin is not updated.
sudo update-flashplugin-nonfree --status
Flash Player version installed on this system : 18.104.22.1687 Flash Player version available on upstream site: 22.214.171.1246 flash-mozilla.so - auto mode link currently points to /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so - priority 50 Current 'best' version is '/usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so'.
If I reinstall
sudo apt-get install --reinstall flashplugin-nonfree
the same problem occurs.
What is the problem?
== Edit (June 7, 2016 )==
This is a recurring problem, running:
sudo update-flashplugin-nonfree --install sudo update-flashplugin-nonfree --status
Flash Player version installed on this system : 126.96.36.1996 Flash Player version available on upstream site: 188.8.131.521
This problem is already reported.
I know that it's never safe to run flash player but debian distribution should help to mitigate this risk for those who need to rely on flash player.
