mint-flashplugin11 update crashes

Whenever I click on "Install Updates" my Update Manager crashes.

Could not refresh the list of packages
"ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR

Hello, tharpa.

Looking at the error message I think there is something wrong with the entries pointing to bimsebasse's PPA. It is a PPA for Maya (Linux Mint), but mentions the name Precise (Ubuntu). I doubt that these entries are correct. - a quick check on Launchpad might also suggest that it is only available for Quantal, not for Precise.

Anyway: As a quick workaround I would launch Software Sources and disable (untick) any entry which points to the Bimsebasse PPA.

The re-launch MintUpdate again.

Please, post the output of the commandline
Code: Select all
inxi -r
This will help identify which Bimsebasse PPA we are talking about.

HTH,
Karl

That seems to have fixed it, thanks.
