Kubuntu update manager has been complaining about failed package download / update

If you, like me, got that really annoying message from update manager regarding failed download of additional data ( usually flashplugin-installer in my case) every time you login, I just found the answer at ubuntu forums .

root@saturn:/var/lib/update-notifier/user.d# pwd
/var/lib/update-notifier/user.d
root@saturn:/var/lib/update-notifier/user.d# ls -l | grep failed
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 24155 Dec 17 10:33 data-downloads-failed
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 27963 Feb 15 08:16 data-downloads-failed-permanently
root@saturn:/var/lib/update-notifier/user.d# rm data-downloads-failed*
root@saturn:/var/lib/update-notifier/user.d#
