I don't know if they would have been released or not if there wasn't much in there, that would have been in the streaming updates.

See image extract of the last two VPS versions (all PUP detections, not necessarily malware) from the link I gave in Reply #9.

I was just a little concerned cause it seems like such a long time to go without a virus definition update

So why does it still say "current version 150417-0"?
Since all versions of avast are run through a personal license given to you, the reality is that you do not own, or control, your copy of avast!  This means that VPS updates and/or streaming updates are issued and controlled by avast!, and not by you.

Understanding this might take a moment or two for some to understand, as what the licence does is allow you to legally run a copy of avast on your phone or system.  You do not own the program.  Only avast! does.  You get to use the program because avast! granted you the right to use it as a full-featured program via an unique licence they issued to you.

So, if a VPS does not come in as expected, the fault lies on some server or vps database issue on avast's! end, not yours.  Your program is fine unless it is displaying/issuing error messages.  If you are not seeing any error messages, you are good to go and your program is working as it should.

Patience is key here.  If you are getting streaming updates, you are protected with the latest definitions.

Guys, seriously ...

Worst case scenario is you didn't get 10 PUP ( Potentially Unwanted Program ) updates.
Best case scenario is you already got them with the Streaming Updates.

What are we talking about here ...

Lol @Be Secure,

I like your enthusiasm, but sometimes it is too much.
This is really nothing to worry about :)

It's obviously an Avast server problem with VPS.  I have 3 Win 7 laptops running AIS which are still on VPS 150417-0, while my 3 Android devices are on 150418-1.  On the laptops, I am getting the streaming updates, currently at 4 folders corresponding to the 150417-0 VPS as well as the VPS that haven't been served to them yet.  Avast sure seems to have a lot of trouble maintaining their servers.

I wonder how many streaming updates Avast can handle before it's efficiency is compromised.  So far, that point hasn't been reached.

VPS updates are now being served.  I turned on my laptop 30 minutes ago and received VPS 150419-0.  Streaming update folder 150419-1 was created a few minutes later.  Servers are back to normal for now, as they usually are.
