You're probably using gnash, not flash. Open up Synaptic (the packager manager) and search for gnash to see if it's installed. It probably is. If you look for 'flash' it probably shows it's installed, too. But if you read the description I think it says it's a meta package that just installs gnash. In other words, despite being named 'flash' it really isn't.

Gnash is buggy. I've had it work. But when it decides it's not going to, there's not much you can do to make it behave. I just look for a repository that carries the real flash and install that after uninstalling gnash. Failing that, I go download flash directly from Adobe and install it that way.

Do you ever get prompted for a password when trying to do the updates? If not, open a terminal and type sudo synaptic. After you give it the password, Synaptic will show up and you can upgrade everything from there. If it has a toolbar item called Mark all upgrades, then select that and Apply to do it. If there isn't a toolbar thing for marking upgrades, go to Custom filters and select the upgrades from there. (I don't use Ubuntu, and there are some variations on the layout of Synpatic, which is why I'm not sure what is on the toolbar.)

Do your updates via Synatpic, then. The updates will be the same ones. Rather, they should be. If you still have some updates not happening after you do that, let me know and I'll tell you how to fix the filter to get them all. But you should be able to get them all via what I explained before.

It sounds like something is wrong with the authentication sysem under KDE. I haven't been able to stand using it since they went to 4.X versions, so I can't tell you what you might need to fix that. But I'd just uninstall the update materials and use Synaptic in its place. I'm runing Lubuntu (uses LXDE), and I uninstalled those things myself and just use Synaptic. I did it because it had a habit of slowing my machine to a crawl whenever it ran up and I was doing something at the same time (I work exclusively from the same netbook whether at home or away).

I uninstalled update-manager, update-manager-core, update-notifier-common and some support stuff. No problems. I just have to go to Synaptic every day manually and do the updates. I prefer that anyway.
