Update I just did a clean install of Ubuntu 13.04 and I still have the same problem

This is what was displayed when I ran steam from the terminal as I clicked on a game to install

i've solved it by putting the 32bit libflashplayer.so into ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/plugins (you need to create the directory)
