Reason: Failed on SHA256 verification on gentoo

One reason of

Reason: Failed on SHA256 verification

is that during creation of ebuilds some packages are fetched from external sources (for instance from adobe-flash site) and they sometimes publish new version of a package exactly under the same name.
Then next update results in a checksum error, because saved source from distfile directory is used.

To fix that you could:

rm -rf /usr/portage/www-plugins/adobe-flash/

or

fix it with
ebuild /usr/portage/www-plugins/adobe-flash/adobe-flash-11.2.202.411.ebuild clean prepare

Above situation should occure very rarely.
