Just noticed mine are not updating and seems it was before program update, just haven't noticed. It will not update manually either...
See attached...

Just got the latest auto update 131127-1 when I came back on-line, I think that patience is the virtue best employed. With the volume of streaming update being downloaded in the background there isn't such a heavy reliance on the regular VPS update.

I have not received any updates, streaming or otherwise for over a month.  I have tried un-installing, re-installing, repairing and everything.

This started when I updated to to version 9.

Does anyone have any ideas?

A month!
If you have had directions and done this and you can't resolve your issue after running AvastClear.exe which reboots your system to  Safemode and uninstalls Avast versions and any/all remnants and then Fresh downloading and installing the latest version of  Avast you want, well you need to get an AntiVirus that will work on your system. ???

EDIT: You could also have our Malware Expert have a look to see what the problem might be. :)

What happens when you try a manual virus definitions update, e.g. what errors are you getting ?

Last encountered error: The license for this product is invalid or has expired.
Engine and definitions: Already up to date (current version 131118-1)

Is this normal? Please help.

No, it's not.

Analogy:  You can't legally drive your car without a driver's licence.  Your car will still run, but if the police catch you, there be a citation at best, and jail time and possession of your car at the worst.  By the same token, avast! will not update to current virus definitions without a valid licence, (which you don't have), but it will still run as it normally would.  Running avast! without the latest current definitions is putting your system at risk for the newest and latest infections it would otherwise detect and block.

Solution:  Renew your license.  For the free version, protection will resume for another year.
