before doing above I had taken a backup
sudo cp /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so
Now I did
sudo dpkg -i flashplugin-installer_10.1.85.3ubuntu1_amd64.deb
I am not able to find out what changes had the above dpkg thing made
to my system i.e. what additional things were downloaded and which
files it added to my system?How can I trace these changes?
I looked /var/log/apt/history.log and /var/log/apt/term.log
but to my surprise there was no information about this downgrade of
Adobe Flash player to an older version.
here is the screen output when I downgraded to an old version

So it appears it surely downloaded some thing but what and where that
is not clear to me.
It downloaded 'flashplugin-installer' first, then the installer went to
and downloaded 'adobe-flashplugin_10.1.85.3.orig.tar.gz'.
