Huh v2015.10.3.2218 ?

Somebody has made a mistake here as v2015.10.3.2225 is the latest build.
And I am also surprised by the 20 day free trial, as I thought it was 30 days.

So, it is a botched ad that is causing you problems? Have you tried restarting your computer then updating?

I tried to update again this morning but once again it showed the same in my screenshot.  I don't want to to do an uninstall, then reinstall.

You could try a repair:
1. Control Panel -> Programs & Features -> Avast
2. Click on 'Repair'.
3. Follow instructions.
4. Reboot.

Still can't update to latest version.  Repair didn't help.
