General :: Error Message Given While Trying To Download Adobe Flash 10.1
Jul 22, 2010
When I try to download the recent adobe flash 10.1 for my linux drive, I get the following error dialog box:
cannot get lock
cannot get the exclusive lock on the packaging backend. Please close any other legacy packaging tools that my be open.
Yum is locked by another application. The other process has the command line '/usr/bin/python /usr/share/yumex/yum_childtask.pyc 2 True False' (PID 2053)
I'm at a lost right now, I tried researching to find a possible reason, but I'm coming up short. I have a dual boot laptop with both fedora core 12 and windows7. Could there be a conflict between the two drives? I have the YUM extender on my linux drive performing the updates for me. I tried doing a YUM update via the terminal viewer, but I still get the same message.Any ideas as to why I'm getting this message, or how to fix this problem?
I recently installed ubuntu 10.10 with no problemds and everythin was working up till the point I installed Adobe flash player, firstly mozilla installed a plugin which gave patchy coverage and then I was confused as to which full version to download and after trying them all none worked. What is the best version to download?
I have Linux/Linux etch and I cannot seem to download some versions o adobe flash player, when I go to some sites and the require me to download the latest AFP, my computer just stacks it in my downloads and I end up with 10 different versions AFP just sitting in my computer, I thy to open and it says cannot open program etc. also sometimes i go to sites and I cannot type in some comment bars, also some of the links in Yahoo won't work like my address book won't open...i cannot adjust my filters, I click and nothing happens.
Moved to linux as I was assured it was "uncrashable" but I seem to have managed it after only 2 days. Running ubuntu 9.10 and trying to download adobe flash player. I get an error message :- E: The package adobe-flashplugin needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it. E:Internal error opening cache (1). Please report.
Every time I close this window synaptic package manager also closes. When I try to download flash player directly from the adobe web page, synaptic refuses to cooperate. I am now stuck as I can't delete this or download anything else.Computer janitor won,t delete it either.Also when I go applications>ubuntu software centre, everything I try to download comes up with Not available in this critical data.I can see this is going to be a very steep learning curve.
Always when i attempt to download any software, an error message opens stating that adobe 8 cannot read it. when saved in downloads clicking open does not function and i cant find an uninstall for the adobe reader 8. I cannot get any anit-virus protection, problem compounded by having no cd input.
I have a Ubuntu(64-bit) installed on my PC. I am new to Linx and as that there are several versions of adobe flash player (such as YUM, .rpm, .deb) available for 64-bit Linux. I want to know that which version is suitable for 64 bit Ubuntu so my browser wiould be able to run the ..... videos.
How to install Adobe Flash on my netbook. I recently installed openSUSE 11.4 which I am guessing is the newest one. I also am using Mozilla Firefox 4.0 Beta 12. I can't seem to install it at all. First I downloaded the YUM file and tried installing it with some weird program that came with openSUSE and it is just too difficult. I definitely do not know how to use it. Then I read I should be installing the tar.gz file and so I did. Even then people have different ways of installing it. The easiest way I have seen has been the way Adobe's website tells how to install it.
Installation instructions for tar.gz 1. Click the download link to begin installation. A dialog box will appear asking you where to save the file. 2. Save the .tar.gz file to your desktop and wait for the file to download completely. 3. Unpackage the file. 4. Copy the libflashplayer.so file to the plugins folder of your browser. Refer to your browser vendor for the location of this folder. 5. To verify the plug-in is installed in your Mozilla browser, launch Mozilla and choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser menu.
Now my problem is that when it tells me to copy "Copy the libflashplayer.so file to the plugins folder of your browser" I cannot find the "plugins" folder in my mozilla/firefox folder. Now I'm actually wondering if it's because it a Beta version of Mozilla Firefox. I'm not very good with "coding" and "commands".
i do believe i have the ubuntu 8.04, and i have the intel atom processor/dell mini 9. i've been trying at least a yr to download and search how to download flash. recently i saw that when i searched flash in the synaptic package manager flash-nonfree or something like that showed up....then i deleted it completely because i got scared. then i read that we were suppose to select that to download it, but when i researched that in my add/remove application it wasnt there. i don't know what to do?! ive been trying forever. also when i try to go to the adobe flash website idk which to chose. the tar.gz or the version for 8.04 plus, but when i click 8.04 and try to download it, it says wrong architecture i836!! i've tried forever. how can i download it? PLEASE HELP(: sorry if this is confusing. idk how to download anything, i'm a ubuntu n00b.
I have a Power PC G4 Dual 1GHz Processor desktop and running Ubuntu Gnome 10.x.I cannot use any of the plugins on Adobe's Flash plugin download page- they all seem to require i386 series processors. Is there an alternative? Maybe from the Linux community that will work with the PPCG4 and also Ubuntu?
When I use the BBC site, I see messages "Cannot play media.You do not have the correct version of the flash player. Download the correct version"..However, when I go to Applications > Ubuntu Software Centre, I get the message, "Adobe Flash Player is installed on this computer. It is used by 1 piece of installed software"If I try to use the Firefox Adobe add-ins feature, I'm directed to the Adobe page. Is it safe to use this feature rather than, for example, Synaptic Package Manager?
I wanna install adobe flash player with yum but it fails to download, I think there may be something wrong with the repositories. Totally, could you give me a step by step instruction for installing the flash player.. i have already tried downloading it from adobe web site for linux and rpm (yum) but i couldn't install it. i also had NOKEY letter in the result
1- The vfstpd is running on the Centos server. The server is in the same home network. The SeLinux and firewall are disabled. I can use Filzilla from a Windows PC from another computer and connect and see directory listing. There is a user names adminftp and he is a memeber of root group. When I try to upload or download I get an ftp critical error message.
2- How can I install Adobe Acrobat Reader, Flash Player and Adobe Shockwave on this Linux box?
Code: dpkg: error processing adobe-flashplugin (--remove): Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should reinstall it before attempting a removal. Errors were encountered while processing: adobe-flashplugin E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1) A package failed to install. Trying to recover: Press return to continue.
Now I can't install anything, I am using Kubuntu 9.10, and have tried fixing this with aptitude and nothing works.
These are some of the things I tried. Code: sudo dpkg --clear-avail sudo dpkg configure -a sudo dpkg --remove adobe-flashplugin sudo dpkg --install adobe-flashplugin
I'm new to Ubuntu and I'm learning this new OS. Using 10.04 Desktop Edition Ubuntu. I want to install adobe flash player on this OS tried every thing present to solve this problem of mine on this forum but couldn't get it. Its giving me this error:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/aptdaemon/worker.py", line 116, in _process_transaction self.update_cache() File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/aptdaemon/worker.py", line 426, in update_cache self._cache.update(progress, raiseOnError=True) File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/apt/deprecation.py", line 103, in deprecated_function return func(*args, **kwds) File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/apt/cache.py", line 309, in update raise LockFailedException("Failed to lock %s" % lockfile) LockFailedException: Failed to lock /var/lib/apt/lists/lock
I just got done installing ubuntu 9.04 and i went to firefox typed in myspace.com, noticed i need plug ins for adobe flash player went to install it 3 times and kept getting this Error: Wrong architecture 'i386', even tryed other plug ins and got same thing..
I'm new to Fedora 13, although 10 years ago I fooled around a little with Red Hat 4.2 and Mandrake 7. I'm trying to install flash on my desktop. The install went as smooth as can be on my laptop, but the desktop isn't going well. First of all, My system is an AMD Phenom 9950 Quad Core in an Asus M4N78 PRO motherboard with 4 Gb of RAM, although Gnome reports it as 3.8 Gb. Video is Invidia GeForce 5500.
The Flash install goes ok until I enter the command: "yum install flash-plugin nspluginwrapper.x86_64 nspluginwrapper.i686 alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686 libcurl.i686"
Once that command starts running it pops out this error message: Error: Package: glibc-2.12-2.i686 (updates) Requires: glibc-common = 2.12-2 Installed: glibc-common-2.12-3.x86_64 (@updates-testing) Available: glibc-common-2.12-1.x86_64 (fedora) Available: glibc-common-2.12-2.x86_64 (updates) You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
I've tried the work arounds suggested by the error message and they didn't work. I tried downloading the missing file and it seems to not exist. I also tried this command: yum downgrade glibc-common-2.12-3.x86_64
That generated this output: Setting up Downgrade Process Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * fedora: mirror.hiwaay.net * livna: rpm.livna.org * rpmfusion-free: mirror.hiwaay.net * rpmfusion-free-updates: mirror.hiwaay.net * rpmfusion-nonfree: mirror.hiwaay.net * rpmfusion-nonfree-updates: mirror.hiwaay.net * updates: mirror.hiwaay.net
I am a novice on my daughters laptop acer aspireone as i agreed to try to get her flash player to update as she cant play all of the facebook games.Ive removed the version of adobe we had, and now I dont know where to go, please explain in simple terms as I do not know my way around her netbook at all.
When I attempt to download the restricted extras from the software center, I get the following error message:
CD/DVD 'Ubuntu 10.04 LTS _Lucid Lynx_ - Release amd64 (20100427.1)' is required,Please insert the above CD/DVD into the drive '/cdrom/' to install software packages from the medium.
I have 2 Ubuntu CDs, the alternate x64 and the desktop x86. I've inserted both and still gave me the same error. The computer is running the alternate x64 version. I've already reinstalled this computer 4 times, and it NEVER asked me for the CD. Why would it ask for it now? Not only that it asks for a CD I don't have.
I am a new ubuntu user, I downloaded it because it was recommended over windows for programming uses. I am new to Ubuntu, and everytime I try and download something from the Ubuntu software center an error pops up saying: "Requires installation of untrusted packages. The action would require the installation of packages from not authenticated sources." It does this for everything I try and download.
I have the normal OS choices menu (Windows XP or Unbuntu) but when I choose ubuntu I get an instant flash of an error message on a black screen so quick I cannot read the whole thing but I caught "error" and "format" and then the computer reboots. I have no problem getting into Windows.
I'm using Fedora 13 and have the Adobe Flash Player installed. Some websites I view tell me that I need to install the flash player to view or listen to the content?? How do I get the flash player to work?
