This is not a problem. Any *-installer package downloads it's contents during install due to licensing restrictions. For your case, you may want to use package adobe-flashplugin instead of flashplugin-installer.

Anyway, if you want to use installer version, you have to check your network settings, and be sure that command wget <url> works proper.
