Flash Installation errors


have tried all old posts but none managed to rectify my error. I have the same error as follows:

h@ubuntu:~$ sudo su
[sudo] password for h:
root@ubuntu:/home/h# dpkg --purge adobe-flashplugin
dpkg: error processing adobe-flashplugin (--purge):
Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should
reinstall it before attempting a removal.
Errors were encountered while processing:
adobe-flashplugin



Get this 2:
E: The package adobe-flashplugin needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.

Pls help!
