Mine is last update 1211120-0 but it's now red and I got the error message about unable to update :(
It is obvious Avast! IT are struggling with the update issue; hence the red notation.  As long as you have the newest update you will be fine.  See the methodology by which your program gets the latest updates above; you do not see this communication process as you would when you visit a website of your choice.
So there won't be the red sign once it all goes okay again? Or after next vps update? It gets my adrenaline up :(
That is correct.

That is correct.
So...it'll really be okay? It's weird it shows latest vps as if it's too old. Dunno why it wants to actualize further, it's still servers to blame? What I should do if next vps stays as red as this one?

EDIT: Yeah, I sound as stupid, because I am really this stupid.  :(
EDIT2: AAAH, never mind, now I got message my vps is up to date and it became green again

Allright then I'm newbie to computers when something like this kind of update won't install I get worried and nervous about what is going on..so far i read kind of through topic..so far can't figure out what to do..I tried repair nothing really happened.. Windows 7 is what i got..Soo this update thing 404 Server side? then Some numbers pop up need help..I'm now reading i think i may have to uninstall Avast and manual?? I'm already worried more because like i say newbie horrible with compys..manual stuff is kind of  a no go for me.. still stuck on last update 7.0.1474

Oookay Edit: So litterly after this message it suddenly updates to this 121119-0....I don't know if that's the last update?

i had two virus definitions green popup updates this morning at 5 am and again at 10 am, then at 1 pm i got the red popup.  i went to the maintenance section and tried to do it manually and when it got to the jrog2-653 file it gave me an error message.  since it appears that we are all having this problem i am going to take a guess that its on avasts end and not on ours.  so i will just wait and hope they fix it.  oh and im also fully up to date on everything.  good day :o

I am not much better myself, but yes, problem is not in your pc, it's server problem. some just got the update from luck, the 404 error still persists

You don't have to do anything it wasn't a problem with the avast install, but the update servers.

Plus as I mentioned in my post 4 minutes before yours, it should be resolved now.

404 error when updating the vdb:
Well, the situation in Munich, Germany, is: one of my machines succeeded now, the other is still giving 404 back.
(Both machines XP SP3, updated).

The issue isn't solved. Even though few people were able to update, it still spits error. And it will show red message about updating VPS definitions, when you restart, even though you have newest one. This it does to me.
