You can try to install google chrome in your ubuntu installation which is already having built-in flash.

https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/

Otherwise, you can install flash plugin through ubuntu software center (which is actually flash 11.2). Hope it will resolve your query.

Can you please give the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | egrep 'flash|gnash|swf|spark'

Thanks

Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and give this command

sudo apt-get install -y ubuntu-restricted-extras

Thanks
