Oops, guys. I am liar, I am sorry. I just only re-check and really
version flash player does not upgraded for me too.

So, let's upgrade this stupid software manualy together =)

- for amd64
- for i386

As root:
# update-flashplugin-nonfree --uninstall
# tar xvf install_flash_player_11_linux.$(uname -m).tar.gz libflashplayer.so
# mv libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/
# update-flashplugin-nonfree --status
Flash Player version installed on this system  :
Flash Player version available on upstream site:
update-alternatives: error: no alternatives for flash-mozilla.so

//not tested// Also it is possible (e.g you don't have root permission) to put it 
in ~/.mozilla/plugins/. If you don't have the "plugins" directory there yet, 
just go ahead and make it.
