I might have misunderstood something. The issue with Avast stable is that when the option "Ask when update is downloaded" is selected Avast doesn't popup a message saying "There is an update to Avast, click here to start the update", but only shows a yellow triangle in the tray. And what about the users who think - "hey, I will get a popup if there is a bug in my Avast and it needs to update. I am protected." But there is a bug and Avast doesn't update because you don't know it is not going to notify you of an update and your tray icon is hidden!? I am not even sure of Program Updates was one of the default selected options to monitor for the security status.

First: I choice with beta update auto for program
 problem: it never popup to request reboot

Second: I choice to request when update exist (better choice, REQUEST and can connect to wifi/lan before update when use low connection)
 And because it's beta change check status to include program version (by default disabled)
 problem: it never popup to say new version exist (just add ! in avast notification, not hidden but tiny icon) and not change status.

Yesterday after manually upgrade, Avast request to reboot and can postpone it.. popup again after the elapsed time..
I restarted PC.. This morning (to make screenshot) I see avast wait for reboot !!!

Well, as you can see in my posted screenshots, it works for me.
I'd suggest to try a clean reinstall of the latest beta and see if it helps.

already a clean install (use cleanup avast tools before install beta; for first post).
But perhaps must just use the default avast settings and never choice another option?

Hi, I meanwhile can confirm the second (silent) reboot request.
And I didn't get any notification for it either. This might be a bug.

I know, I just posted before about this issue and later saw that the issue you're talking about might be a different one so I posted to correct myself.
