Flash is on the repositorys. You do not need to go to http://www.adobe.com to download this EVER.

Once you get the packages straightened up you can run:

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

You will then have flash installed.

I have the same problem.

Follow the same guide I pasted then

in future to install flash use:

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

and DO NOT go to the adobe site or you will get this predicament.
