Flash player not upgrading on FF 3.5 (I believe) with Natty Narwhal


Hey all, this is my first post here, so apologies if it's bad/in the wrong spot/etc. I just upgraded to Natty, running on a dual-boot rig with Windows Vista (...that's what it came with, and I don't have a ton of cash to upgrade it.), since the latter is becoming rather error-prone and needs a reinstall.

After the upgrade to Natty from v9.04, though, my flash player won't update past version 10.0.15.3; the latest version is 10.3.181.4. This is rather annoying in its own right, the more so when I watch quite a bit of hulu.

I have so far tried uninstalling and reinstalling flash through the software center and by manually installing the .tar.gz file available from this site: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
Perhaps most distressing is that the site advertises that you're downloading v10.3.181.4, when I can't get past 10.0.15.3.

Interestingly, when I tried the 'download via APT' option specifically for Ubuntu, there were issues. It would get to the 'open with' box, but when I tried to click on software center, nothing would happen (software center would dehighlight, and no further action would take place) including when I specifically searched and selected software center.
As of a few minutes ago, the apt server was having issues (or firefox is) and firefox reports it is unable to find the file.

I have no idea what's going on. Could someone help me? Thanks!

Did you upgrade from 9.04 directly to 11.04? This is not supported and might have broke your system. I personally would recommend a fresh install of Natty, but may be someone else had the same issues and knows a solution to your problem.
