I'm also having this problem, my friend had it last night and it finally worked for her, but I'm worried about getting a virus and ruining my computer, I don't have the money to restore it right now!

EDIT: It just worked! if someone fixed it thanks so much!

They're having some issues with their update servers.  Just sit tight, because they're fixing it right now.

hi Shunskitten,

As long as you practice safe browsing and keep your antivirus up-to-date (vps 121119-1 counts as being up-to-date when a newer one is not available) you will be fine.  I would only begin to worry when the vps is three or four days old and no one else is reporting problems updating to the latest version.

That is not the case here.

The fix for the updating problem is being rolled out right now, so you should be able to bring Avast! up to where it should be soon.

Noted that the automatic update is a little larger than most updates here per your .jpeg.

Have the same problem updating on two computers, one XP the other 7 64bit. Had to constantly select manual update to get it to update once today. Cloud is still connected though.

Get the following when try to update manually.

Last encountered error: HTTP error (404), while trying 173.193.138.142:80//iavs5x/jrog2-653.vpx

Using Ip tool, got the following.

As has been said:
We are sorry for inconvenience, fix is being uploaded to all our update servers.

So it may well take a little time for all (hundreds) of the update servers to be populated.

Still getting 404 in Canada.  Reminds me of that massive blackout in the northeast US and eastern Canada several years back ... despite living in a high-density part of town with lots of apartment buildings, I'd swear our building was the very last one within a radius of several miles to get power back.  Oh well, wait some more.

Why try again when you have just got the update - there are hundreds of update servers, this time round you must have hit one that hasn't had the fix uploaded to it.
