Yes, i run it as root, here is the output, so the error is caused by
the options of wget.

when i switch to a common user and run it again, it outputs like this:
apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13 Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?

thank you very much!
and i also found a way to manually install it:
For amd64 OS, follow the steps below to support flash 9
1. download latest plugin from adobe,
2. unzip the downloaded package to a location like
/root/Software/flash/install_flash_player_9_linux, it will contain
3. close the web browser
4. install nspluginwrapper by exe "apt-get install nspluginwrapper"
5. register the plugin by "nspluginwrapper -i
6. open the browser, it can play flash 9 now.
