Solved: Can't install flashplugin.nonfree. ERROR: wget failed to download
Thanks for your help.
It was just that I needed to apt-get install as root, not sudo apt-get.
The following command
# apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
worked just fine.
$ sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
failed because the invoked script probably did not have the write permission
for a certain directory.
This is a little bit confusing for a newbie like me.
But, anyway, I can now see the videos on youtube.
I appreciate the help by everyone.
