According to the description in the avast store you need to use the command line tool and "integrate" into amavis.

I followed these instructions

1. Integrating avast antivirus
Open the AMaViS configuration file (e.g. /etc/amavis/conf.d/50-user)
and insert the following lines into the file:
@av_scanners = (
### http://www.avast.com
['Avast', '/bin/scan', '{}',
  • , [1], qr/\t(.+)/m]

);
2. Enabling virus scanning
Then open the AMaViS content filter configuration file (e.g.
/etc/amavis/conf.d/15-content_filter_mode) and enable antivirus checking
mode by uncommenting the ’bypass virus checks’ lines.

I'm don't know about avast and linux, but that looks good to me.
What makes you believe infected mails are not detected ?
Have you tested it with the eicar test file attached to a mail or the string from it included in the mail text ?

the problem is that the mail client received the email with the avast virus blocks them. While avast internet security detects them in the client

Avast should work on Ubuntu 16.04. Does the "scan" utility detect some local virus sample, e.g. EICAR? If it does, then your AMAVIS integration does not work.
