root@shared1 [~]# rpm --import /path/to/avast.gpg
error: /path/to/avast.gpg: import read failed(2).

You do not use the exact command with the /path/to/avast.gpg path, don't you?
If you do, than the solution is easy - use the real path to the GPG key. Another common
problem is that if you copy&paste the GPG key from the documentation PDF, it will most
probably not work as the PDF reader discards some whitespace in the key when you
copy&paste the content. Always use the GPG key you have obtained with the license file.

SECOND ISSUE
...
warning: rpmts_HdrFromFdno: Header V3 RSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 574f2d7b: NOKEY

That's still the same issue. The rpm manager complains that the GPG key is missing which is
no wonder when its import failed...

Thanks for the reply tumic,

i followed the instructions give to me by avast and that was the error i was getting. i am a linux noob so to speak where would i find the correct location for GPG key so i can input the gpg key in there so it will install the program via yum?

Any assistance would be greatly welcome.

Hi,

I only registered to this forum because i saw that a newbie (reddev32) needs help but he only gets dumb useless answers and i hate that.

Look here reddev32 http://files.avast.com/lin/repo/pool/ in my case debian based distribution which could be Debian,Ubuntu,Linux Mint there you can download it directly and install it .

PS:by the way the captcha at the end to confirm the post is shit

Hi Anachnu,

Thanks for registering and posting.

I've got a new product but what ill do is create a new centos 6.5 install on my server and test the installation to see if i get the same error.

Really do appreciate the help :).

Sorry, but the only dumb and useless answer here is yours... Installing the packages
directly without the repo will not help him. He still needs a license file that comes with
the GPG key he is missing. And pointing him to a Debian repo when he uses Centos
won't help him at all.

The correct answer is in my first reply - get the license file and the GPG file (he can start
with the trial license available here: https://www.avast.com/linux-server-antivirus).
Then install the GPG key with the command from the documentation, but with the correct
path. Install the package, copy the license and start the service, that's all.
