Thanks Chetna, Jeffrey's plugin worked great. Still, it would be nice to use the oem Lightroom plugin as my history of uploads is all there for reference etc. I guess new year and new plugin will be the way to go in 2016! Thanks for your help

It might have been just coincidence that Friedl's plugin worked. In the last year or so, Flickr has gotten more unreliable, with frequent service flakiness, as Yahoo enters its death spiral. Usually these problems just go away in minutes, hours, or days. Friedl's plugin is generally just as susceptible to this flakiness as LR's built-in plugin, though it often handles the bugs more gracefully. It might have been that the Flickr problem got resolved before you tried Friedl's plugin, or it might be that you just got lucky and the problem (while still unresolved) didn't occur with the plugin.
So try the built-in Flickr plugin again and see if it is now working.
