Same problem with same error message "...404 Not Found"
However I can share a tested workaround for Linux:

4 - Go into the folder (ie: cd Downloads/Flirc-v1.2.2-x64)
5 - Enter: sudo ./Flirc
6 - Enter you root password
You can use the utility as well
sudo ./flirc_util then choose an action then ie: sudo ./flirc_util version
Hope this will help
