    Flash Player: Connection failed. Unable to complete installation. Mac OSX

    glueckli Level 1

      I'm working on a mac running 10.10.1 Yosemite in Safari. My current Flash version is 15.0.0.
      On most videos and pictures it now says 'Your Flash Player is out of date".

      I've clicked on this icon, which opens saying do you want to download the newest version, and clicked yes.

      I've downloaded Adobe Flash Player Update several times.

      The downloading always works, the problem is with the installation:

      It failed the first time, and all following times it 'picks up' at about 30% then goes up all the way to 97% (sometimes 99%) and then says: Connection failed. Unable to complete installation.

       

      I've tried all the links in the forums saying download directly from here: http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/latest/help/install_flash_player_osx.dmg - but safari can't find the link.

       

      I wanted to deinstall Flash Player and found this link on the adobe website(Uninstall Flash Player | Mac OS): http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/support/uninstall_flash_player_os x.dmg -> but it says "Safari can't find the server fpdownload.macromedia.com" so I can't even uninstall it!

       

      I have no idea what else to try???

       

      I also tried to open all those links in Firefox and Chrome and they weren't found there either.

       

      Has anyone ideas what I can do? All the links that I found in the forum which solved the problem for others are 'not found' when I click on them.

       

      Thanks for any tipps!!!
