I downloaded the Adobe Flashplayer Update, Adobe Flashplayer still does not appear in my Applications folder. When selecting content that needs Flashplayer, I am receiving a message that says I need to download it. I don't know what's going on.
You write that you "download" the update, but did you also install it?
Also, since Flash Player is just a browser add-on, I don't think it should appear in the Applications folder.
