Hi Jonathan 

I can't help by popping round myself but thought I might help with words instead ;-) 

If installed flash should update all by itself when you allow updates to run on your Ubuntu pc. 

The package that installs and configures Flash for you is usually called 


So you should be able to find that in the software installer or you can use the command line: 

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer 

That will require you to enter your password to complete. 

If it is already installed then try telling it to update everything for you immediately: 

sudo apt-get update 


sudo apt-get dist-upgrade 

You can do the same force upgrade in the GUI using the upgrade or software manager. For normal Ubuntu installs that is Software Centre so check for the flashplugin-installer and see if there is an update available. 

Hope that helps but I suspect there are others about who may be available for a visit if not. 

Kind regards

Please could HLUG help me once again: 

Ideally, I wonder whether it is possible for a HLUG member to actually physically carry out the command on my Ubuntu 14.10 to install an up-to-date Adobe flash player to see a "YouTude" video (I'm learning to do the Tango as Chairman of the "Hereford Tango Club"). At the moment a YouTude video will repeatedl stop to upload. 
I find this command structure too complex to do myself even with the online hep available. 
Thank you!
