As far as I can tell Adobe stopped supporting flash on Linux and a
deprecated vulnerable version is all that is available.
I would highly advice against using the flash plugin. Unfortunately
advertising networks do not adequately vet flash based advertisements
resulting in malware being distributed via flash on common websites we
all visit, including news sites.
Usually the malware targets Windows but there is some that targets Linux
and will encrypt files on your system asking a ransom for the decryption
Just say no to flash.
That's not what you asked, but that's what I advise.
