Ubuntu: Problem installing flash player

Problem installing flash player
Recently, I installed ubuntu updates and my browser asked me for flash player, which was previously installed. i tried to install using the regular command
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
But, it says
flashplugin-installer is already the newest version
Finally, I found the workaround. Previous installation has to removed first (which anyway is not working)
Run the following commands :
sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-installer
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
Viola!! It works now.
