    How about trying sudo apt install flashplugin-installer and then visiting the website again?

If Flash doesn't work, simply run this command in Terminal.

sudo -s


Type in your password (if prompted).

Then, type in the following command:

apt-get install flashplugin-installer

Hopefully you should be able to take it from there! Enjoy flash!

By the way, this is Flash Player 11.2 - Further versions will not work with Linux.

    Why do you even need sudo -s? Just sudo apt install flashplugin-installer is sufficient.
