The current version of the package is 1:1.6.3, did you already try that

Did you test the wget command as root or as your normal user? There
might be differences that break the download for root, e.g. the
http_proxy environmental variable. Also, the script uses wget with
additional options, so maybe that is what causes the problem.

If nothing else helps then you can edit the file


and change line 38 from




. Then run "update-flashplugin-nonfree --install" as root and you should
get more verbose messages about what is going on. Post the output here,
it will hopefully give us a clue.
