Are you using some kind of a personal firewall?
What operating system do you have?

I have Norton Firewall, but not only did I add Avist to be accepted, I have also turned it off.  I just tried to update again and got a totally different message.
I have Windows XP  Intel Petntium Celeron 80 GB with Cable connection.
Here's the latest message this mornin;.

Seems like someone/something is blocking the avast updater (process called "avast.setup") from accessing the Internet.
Are you sure the personal firewall is completely shut off? Firewall would an obvious cause of the problem...

Thanks

Into the firewall settings, the following programs should be allowed to connect:

ashServ.exe (avast! antivirus service)
ashWebSv.exe (avast! Web Scanner) (allow server rights)
ashMaiSv.exe (avast! e-Mail Scanner Service) (allow email rights)
ashUpdSv.exe (avast! Update Service)
avast.setup (avast! Update executable)

I went to 'my computer' went to 'firewall' and turned it off.  Ya know where is says (Not Recommended)  <- scary thought  ;)
Then I tried to update it.  Still had error.
I know it installed when I did it, the icon clearly shows it's running and for how long (when I click on the icon on the toolbar of course).
I'm not a wiz at this stuff by any means and don't do much other than emails and stuff - but I want to be sure I'm protected.
Any other suggestions?  I sure appreciate you helping with this.

Okay Tech, and anyone else who reads this, I'm about to give away that I'm a blonde...... ;)

The programs you listed that should be allowed are not showing up in the firewall screen as programs to allow.  So obviously I'll need to enter them....but where?  There's no place to allow that.  It does however allow me to mark Avast as allowed, which of course I've done that.

And so you know, the reasons why I know about the messages is 1) The system tried to do an automatic update and came up with the error message.  2) I rcvd a warning message that my anti-virus program may not be updated.

Okay ya'll... ... what's a girl to do- now?  :P

I do not use (and I'll never use  ;D) Norton Firewall. So I can't help you with a screenshot.
Anyway, can you manually ask for an update?
Right click the 'a' blue icon, go to update and choose 'Program' to see what you get...
If Norton Firewall asks for connection (specially avast.setup), allow it  8)

Right click as instructed -
Meesage:
Downloading Packages
Error: Can not connect to server.

follwed by
(Unknown 80)
Cannot connect to download16.avast.com
 - you are not connected to the Internet.
 - your firewall does not allow the program "avast*.setup" to access the Internet; you can find details in help or read the FAQ section on avast! website.
 - your HTTP proxy settings are incorrect.
 - the server is inaccessible because of a network error or maintenance

Okay - what now? ::)
By the way, I'm clearly on line right now.........I have cable connection.............

Better will be:

1. Open that log file again. Select all text. Delete it. Save the file.
2. Delete the contents of this folder: C:\DOCUME~1\COMPAQ~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\
3. Manual update avast (program and not only the virus database).

If the update fails, go to the log again, copy it all and post here.
