Hi there,
4.1.278 is there..

no problems with updating ;)

Unfortunately updating my version doesn't work. It shows me the download-windows and then after having downloaded 'setup_av_pro-116.vpu' the window disappears and only the taskbar-button "avast! Antivirus Setup" stays... and hangs (for at least 15 minutes now).

It might be that my provider sent a wrong file (they have damn advertising on the first request with their f*cking transparent proxy) - is there a way to reset avast! to the state before the tried update?

I got following files in the Setup-folder:

setup_av_pro-116.vpu [303k]
setif_av_pro-116.vpu [39k]

Bye,
  ts

BTW: I clicked the setup-taskbar icon and pressed ALT-F4 and the box said "Last encountered error: The package is broken." PErhaps that might help to debug the problem?

EDIT:
It seems that the setup encounters a problem with that:

20:25:18.000  DldPackage: http://www.avast.com/iavs4x/setup_av_pro-116-10c.vpu->C:\Programme\Alwil Avast4\Setup\setup_av_pro-116-10c.vpu, returned 00000000
20:25:18.000  Diff bad: setup_av_pro-116-10c.vpu
20:25:18.000  IsFullOkay: setup_av_pro-116.vpu - not okay

EDIT2:

I manually wget'ed the files 'setup_av_pro-116-10c.vpu' and 'setup_av_pro-116.vpu', copied them into the Setup-folder and i got *taaaaaaaadaaaaaaaaa*:

I wonder what that means... that you actually downloaded a corrupted file?

VLK,

Other users are reporting a broken chain error when trying to download build 278.

Any help here?

My AVAST has not done the auto update yet to 278.  I leave the updating to AVAST and normally do not manually download the db or program updates unless I get impatient.   ;D

Any solution for the broken chain so I can pass it on to the users with the problem?
