    Don't download anything from a website that gives you that kind of "emergency" pop up message. It's a scam designed to make panic override common sense.

    If you're concerned about needing updates on your phone, always check the Play Store for available updates. That's where they will be released, not through some random website you visit.

    Chrome doesn't support flash. Therefore there is no update. So either you are seeing some kind of malware that's trying to get itself installed or the website is just expecting you to have flash, which you can't with that browser.
