I've been quietly lurking, waiting for someone seeing success, and not blindly contributing to a DoS by madly clicking the Update button... ;)

I just tried it, and got the manual update just fine. All my lights are green.

Thanks so much for this forum - and especially to DavidR and mchain for their leadership here!

PS: Anyone reading this and still wondering what's going on and why the 404, please read earlier comments. It's all there. The problem is with Avast's servers; it's being corrected; you will see results soon. As my Aussie brother say, "No worries, Mate!"

PPS: Avast! ROCKS!!

the files are not present on the servers, no point of trying since they wont be found

just wait until Avast has it fixed

Yup me too. Just got a red pop up box saying my last virus definitions was unsuccessful. Opened GUI and went to update and watched it do it's thing - saw error 404 appear briefly. Closed the GUI and tried to update via the link on the red pop up box (still hadn't closed it) and this worked. Updated successfully. Maybe that time it connected with a different server?

I daresay avast! team are on to it. :)

Same problem here: 404 on 4 different machines. Last definitions that came through: 121119-1

edit: definitions are updated now, that fix seems to work.
Tried a program update and got a 404.

I updated to version 121120-0 but again it is the same error so I suggest patience is a failure on the side of avast :)

Through persistent attempts i have managed to manually update. Seems to have a mind of it's own though as when i tried again straight after i got the error 404 message.

Thank for your kind and timely reply.  It is always welcome when one of you guys come in voluntarily and assist us in some form or other.

You guys ROCK! 

Reason I say that is because as I was typing this reply, Avast! automatically updated to vps version 121120-0 all by itself.  Good job!

P.S.  Never was worried that the update was not going to happen; I knew it would, but might take a little bit more time.

See below for notification of update
