Streaming updates have stopped
« on: July 02, 2014, 01:32:32 PM »
Yesterday, I noticed that streaming updates weren't coming for about 4.5 hours in the morning, then received a few only to stop again.  Since last night at 7.29 PM USA EDT, I have received no streaming updates.  I have 14 streaming updates up until then.  The VPS is at 140701-0, which was updated at 6.46 PM EDT last night.

r-060-042-234-077.ff.avast.com seems to be the streaming updates server that is causing the problem.  At least, that's the one that my machine is trying to retrieve them from.

I'm also having some very strange issues with both updating in general and the streaming updates but mostly my problem is that I have the updates set to download automatically and obviously, streaming updates is on as shown in Midnights above but the program will not download the updates by itself. I have to manually patch it myself... even though the settings are set to automatic.

Not sure what's going on here, I've done everything possible to try and get the program to update itself, repairing avast (done this 4 times, but this only makes it worse as the avast emergency updater is completely removed from the task scheduler), reinstalling the program (done this about 6 times) and resetting my network settings and modem. All of these have been unsuccessful... the strange thing is, the program tries to update itself on startup of Windows 7, as I see the instup.exe process running but when it comes to the 240 minute duration when its supposed to update itself, it NEVER happens. I even left it on for a whole night before and it never updated even once.

Edit: I forgot to mention this problem started shortly after installing the newest version of Avast! (.2021), started a couple days after the installation but actually started with not being able to connect to the avast update servers AT ALL, infact... I couldn't connect to anything avast related, not even to download a program as it was downloading at like 10kb/s and my connection was NOT the issue as I had this checked by my ISP provider.

So far today I've received only 3 streaming updates and had to manually update the virus definitions.........140703.0.  Windows 8.1.1

Also just checked my husbands computer and had to manually update to the same version as shown above.  His Windows 7 has received 4 streaming updates.  He's still using Avast 2018 but I updated mine to the latest version yesterday.

Both computers are set to automatically update the virus definitions.

VPS and streaming updates have been normal since my Reply#2 in this thread.  The servers I'm linked to are now responsive and have the updates to serve.

I don't know anything about the server's but I should be getting the VPS updates automatically.  Also, more streaming updates.

By saying that you get more streaming updates, they aren't over and above normal VPS updates as the VPS update when released contains all of the previous streaming updates. It is just that streaming updates don't hang around waiting for the next VPS Update.

I'm having no issues either, with 62 streaming updates since VPS 140703-0

It shouldn't really matter what time it is there 1PM it is going to be much later on Central European Time (CET) now 8.30 pm in the UK and 9.30pm CET, so lots would have been released during the day. But you will possibly have received a VPS update, which includes those streaming updates, so the previous streams are removed.

Once again I had to manually update the virus definitions..........140703-1.  I don't know what the problem is but it needs to be fixed.
