Virus definitions updates fail
« on: June 23, 2012, 07:37:18 AM »
I have been using Avast for years, with no issues.

Suddenly I am getting a message that "The package is broken" when it tries to update.

This started in the last 24 hours.

Thanks Asyn!

Very weird, but, just as I was reading your advice, I had the green notice pop up saying my virus database has been updated.

Must have been a bug on Avast side.

1. You're welcome.
2. Maybe just a glitch then. Thanks for your feedback.
