leebojammin, since your comment is much more recent than anything else
on this bug, you may actually be experiencing bug #174709, as opposed to
this bug. This bug (139138) is that firefox and/or apturl is failing to
install the flashplugin-nonfree package properly and/or failing to
properly report errors to the user (maybe I'm being a bit imprecise, but
I scanned through the comments here rather quickly).

In contrast, bug 174709 is that the flashplugin-nonfree package is
getting installed properly by the Ubuntu package management
infrastructure, but that the flashplugin-nonfree package itself is
failing to properly download and install files from Adobe's Flash player
download. (It downloads the tarball from Adobe but notices that the MD5
sum does not match, so it does not proceed to install the files. The
reason the MD5 sum does not match is because Adobe recently released a
new version of the Flash player.)
