So you're getting errors when you try to view flash content in your web browser, not when you're trying to install flashplayer itself? crash_override_me gave you the solution.

The browser asks me to install flash player to view content, when i click on the download & install icon i get the message i quoted earlier.
if i need to install the plugin manually i could do with a few poimters cuz i was never that good at manual installs
