The is the only place to get it, I believe. I don't remember the message you get when it's installed but you don't have to do anything. Did you scroll down to make sure it didn't say anything like "Congratulations on installing..."?

I notice there's a "promo ID" in that string, so maybe this is/was a special-purpose link. If so, perhaps it's out of date or something?

Killer's probably right. Use http://www.adobe.com/downloads/
That should get you in.
