Avast VPS update for versions 5 to 8 saying 03/04/2018
« on: March 13, 2018, 06:59:02 PM »
Subject says it all. I am trying to update the database on my laptop but when I download and install "Avast VPS update for versions 5 to 8" from the https://www.avast.com/en-us/download-update page, it says that the update is from 03/04/2018. It was my understanding that these database updates where done daily and I have never had an issue in the past until now.

I first saw the issue Yesterday and was going to see if it got fixed with today update but I have not seen a change in the last 24 hours.

They are done daily and often more frequently (see image, shows 5 VPS updates today on my system), but the download update page you reference is for off-line VPS Update and contains the complete database.

If that system is on-line then you should be able to do a manual VPS update from the avastUI

Hi DavidR,

My systems are offline that is why I am manually downloading the updates off of the https://www.avast.com/en-us/download-update page.

As mentioned I've tried downloading Yesterday and Today and both times I've received updates saying 180304 (March 4th, 2018)

I don't know how frequently that the full database download is updated, but March 4th is somewhat old.

I will try to attract some attention to it.

I've been using that page to download the database updates for the last 9 months. From my experience the database was updated daily without error.

Hi, this link should work: https://files.avast.com/iavs5x/vpsupd.exe

It isn't so much that the previous link didn't work, but the file wasn't fully up to date.

Sorry for my bad wording Dave. Let's try again. ;)
The link should provide an up to date version of Avast VPS for offline systems.

Thank you for reporting this. Some forgotten http redirect caused that iavs5x/vspupd.exe pointed to old origin server. We apologize for inconveniences caused.

It should work now, please continue using official download page https://www.avast.com/en-us/download-update, currently direct link is to our CDN is https://install.avcdn.net/iavs5x/vpsupd.exe, but it may change in future without a notice.
