ln is in coreutils, looks like anaconda tried installing it before it had coreutils available.

[user@host ]$ rpm --requires -q flash-plugin
glibc >= 2.4
/bin/sh
/bin/sh
/bin/sh
/bin/sh
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix?) <= 4.0-1
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames?) <= 3.0.4-1

The requires on this rpm are fairly weak, in the least it should check you have a browser installed.
