Just run this apt install command
sudo apt install pepperflashplugin-nonfree browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash
After this restart your browser and check Adobe's site to verify if your Pepper flash is working and showing at least version 32.
As you'll see below it will download the latest version which is currently 32 and this was not possible with the old/crappy deprecated adobe-flash plugin.
