First, i don't know where you're getting that error message from, but it certainly isn't coming from Flash Player itself. There is no circumstance under which we give you an error like that.
So i'd guess you're using some software or web site which has coded in this error.
Second, what fee-paying groups might you be talking about? That also makes no sense.
Third, if for some reason the install at http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer isn't working, there is a standalone download you can use, it's in the text of this technote:
