Could you try a manual update and let me know what error you get

So the manual update worked and it is just not doing it automatically

Exactly the problem is that the updates do not automatically make them myself , but I have to get them manually.

Try being a little more patient. Each time you manually update, the cycle starts all over again.
You're not unprotected if you didn't get that VPS update as long as you're receiving streaming updates.
A watched water pot never seems to boil.......
Give it 24 hrs and see if you receive an auto update. If not, then it's time to dig deeper. :)

Thank you Bob , I will follow your advice and also try to see what happens even though I have already tried to do this before you write in the forum. Let's try this solution and we give 24 hours time ( to avoid mistakes even a little more ) and see if I get an automatic update . I do not know if it can be useful, but the pop up commercial avast appear to me .

A screenshot of that pop-up would be helpful.

I am sorry for getting into the discussion, but I have been having the same problem as you: no automatic updates since I have moved from my old pc to the new laptop running windows 8/8.1. Everything works fine on my mother's pc running windows 7 also everything is fine on my cousin's laptop(which is identical to mine, except he is running windows 7 professional). I receive the streaming updates but no definition updates. I've tried leaving it for 3 days: no updates. Manual updates work fine. Also, the first update just after Avast was installed went fine by itself and that was the last automatic update I received. I am sad because I had to move from Avast because of that. I was using Avast since version 4=((((( I hope it is going to be fixed in the version 10
