The problem with the package is that it downloads it from adobe.com and check its md5sum. Periodically adobe changes or upgrades the tar.gz and then, flashplugin-nonfree package fails. That's why using unstable works better, but even with unstable it will fail since adobe changes it until a new version of the package is uploaded. At Linex we used another approach: using the same script flashplugin has, but downloading from a linex trusted repository the md5sum of the tar.gz. So when Adobe changes it, I only have to generate the md5sum and put it in my server and inmediately it works without having to change the package. A similar approach or using the almost-dead volatile Debian repository to download the md5sum should be used in this case. Regards.
