Ubuntu – Having problems updating the flash player


I have been trying to figure this one out with the questions already asked about flash player but were not able to do it. If I go to this site https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/ it will say that my Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202 is no up to date. So I pressed update now and got the .tar.gz file. Typed in about:plugins in firefox and got the path for my flashplayer to be /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so . Went in through the command line and first renamed to old libflashplayer.so to libflashplayer.so100 and then copied the new one in to the folder. Restarted firefox but it still says that I have an outdated version of flash. Am I even doing it right? Is there a apt-get command to get the latest update for flash player? Because my youtube and so on runs slow so I figured its because I dont have the latest update.
