[Bug 179111] Package scripts download the wrong version of binary package

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

The install scripts for this package have an out-dated check sum for the
adobe flash binary package. The package is being downloaded from
but this is the most recent version of flash which is now 9,0,115,0
instead of the that the Ubuntu package seems to expect.

It seems to me that the package should be updated with the new checksum
and changed to download the specific adobe package version instead of
the most current one to avoid the problem in the future.

The install fails with the following message:

12:28:00 (154.68 KB/s) - `./install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz' saved [3036127/3036127]

Download done.
md5sum mismatch install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
The Flash plugin is NOT installed.

I will attach a copy of the full output of aptitude.
