Nothing wrong with it per se as I trust Adobe. However, Flash is known for being a CPU hog, which is why Apple won't let Flash anywhere near iOS. Occasionally there are security issues, so make sure to keep it up to date with patches.

I have received popup suggesting download which claim to be from the vendor but on check I have discovered many of them are not. Hence the reason I suggested going to the vendor's website to be sure you don't get a download crammed with malware.

I'd never follow any kind of popup directly. However some legitimate websites will direct to Adobe for the download. I get that there's phishing (since an administrator password may be requested) and malware out there, including sites that install the real thing plus all that malware.
