The Update Now button link leads only back to the plugincheck page, the right link should be http://get.adobe.com/reader/ or if there is any common page for Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat.
Michal,

your Acrobat does not need to be updated.

I think this is another Duplicate of bug 1023718.

In 1023718 there are links to other bugs about
'Adobe Reader not being detected correctly' on the 'new in 2014 plugincheck'.

See bug 1020133 in the first instance.

Dan Pernokis, who reported bug 1023718, has in bug 1020133 comment # 3 
told Schalk Neethling (who has been working on the 'new plugincheck service')
about the redirect.

As I write, the 'Flash result' (bug 1023838) is now correct in Fx 30 and Aurora.
The 'Acrobat result', *this* bug is still not fixed.

Michal,
I also notice, from your screenshot, that your Java might be out of date.
See bug 1023835.

Michal,

I meant to also give a link to the most recent

Adobe Security Bulletin
Security Updates available for Adobe Reader and Acrobat
Release date: May 13, 2014
Vulnerability identifier: APSB14-15 
http://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/reader/apsb14-15.html

I think your Adobe Reader X (10.1.10) is OK.

DJ-Leith
Thanks DJ-Leith for your exhaustive information. Marking this report as duplicate. And I will also update my Java. ;)
