rpm install problem, flash


I do not seem to be able to install an updated Adobe flash.

SUSE 11.0
Linux linux-3eb6 2.6.27.7-9-pae #1 SMP 2008-12-04 18:10:04 +0100 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I have done an rpm --rebuilddb. The following seems incompatible.

# rpm --erase flash-plugin-10.0.45.2-release.i386.rpm
error: package flash-plugin-10.0.45.2-release.i386.rpm is not installed

# rpm --install flash-plugin-10.0.45.2-release.i386.rpm
package flash-plugin-10.0.45.2-release is already installed

Any suggestions?

"--erase" takes a package name as in "flash-plugin", not a file name.
