    I have set the flash player update settings to "Allow Adobe to install updates (recommended)". But still, if I click on the "Check Now" button, if tells me that there is an update and opens the adobe flash player download page in Safari. I have "version 13.0.0.214" installed.

    Isn't this supposed to update my flash player automatically?

    Even when I go into the System Preferences Flash Player pane and click on check for updates when one is available it tells me no updates are available.

    I have never updated Flash automatically. BTW, Flash is now at Flash 14.

    The current release version of Flash is Flash 14. You have Flash 13 installed. The Control Panel says that an update is available. An update is available. Is this concept difficult to understand?

    Yes, but go ahead and update it manually, if you like * .
    (note - in my experience, I have had that option to "Allow Adobe to install updates) always checked, but for me, version 14 was the first time that the software has actually done that without me installing it manually (but maybe I'm not patient enough :D )

    * ( if you really think that keeping Flash is worth the effort. Lots of folks here might disagree with that point of view :D )

    You'd think so, wouldn't you?

    I've never known it to work - on all my Macs, with that checked I still get the prompts & have to go through the upgrade steps manually for at least the last couple of years.
