Just a quick question to ask if this is "normal": Every time I run an update, I see the following message:

Code: [Select]

Package vpsmac is up to date.
tar: install/update.sh: Not found in archive
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

+ '[' -d '/Library/Application Support/Avast/files/defs/13121200' ']'
+ echo 'Version already installed?'
Version already installed?
+ exit 1

No program update available.

Now, this might be totally harmless but I'm a bit confused by the tar error and some command exiting with a non-0 status. I couldn't find anything meaningful on Google so I was hoping anyone here has a clue what's going on.

Same issue seen here for the last approx. 2 or 3 months, on every manual Vdefs update when the log was pulled down. Not quite every time, but probably 90% observed log, and 100% of those observed, look like yours. Most automatic, self-updates occurred without observation. Hope there is an easy explanation.

Here's my example, the latest one that I saved for reference:
