Close your browsers and remove your flash installation

sudo apt purge --remove flashplugin-installer adobe-flashplugin
sudo apt autoremove

Now install pepperflash-plugin for Chromium and Firefox (works for all other browsers)

sudo apt install browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash

Go to http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

and it should say that you have Flas version 22 installed.
