Any suggestions?

Another reason you may be getting the "nothing to do message" would be
that you do not have the macromedia repository configured as suggested
so yum can find a match for flash-plugin.
Yes, it appears you don't have the mplug repo. Simple fix, as root:
cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
wget http://macromedia.mplug.org/macromedia-i386.repo
