So what is this thing which I downloaded via wget

wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/multiverse/f/flashplugin-nonfree/flashplugin-installer_10.1.85.3ubuntu1_amd64.deb

how is it different from the one it downloaded?

Based on instructions here

http://www.webupd8.org/2011/03/fix-pinkred-youtube-videos-bug-using.html#more
for 64 bit
before doing above I had taken a backup
sudo cp /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so
/usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so.old

Now I did
wget
http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/multiverse/f/flashplugin-nonfree/flashplugin-installer_10.1.85.3ubuntu1_amd64.deb
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
dpkg: warning: downgrading flashplugin-installer from
10.2.152.27ubuntu0.10.04.1 to 10.1.85.3ubuntu1.

I was wrong in my first post. The 'flashplugin-installer' was the one
you installed with 'dpkg -i'.


See here "http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/flashplugin-installer" for
a brief explanation of what 'flashplugin-installer' does.
