Avast for linux install error

This is error Message 1(First Problem)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# rpm -ivh avast-rhel-2.2.0-1.x86_64.rpm

The installer will download the lastest virus databast (VPS) now. This may
take several minites. If downloading the VPS fails. you must repeat it
later by running the /var/lib/avast/Setup/avast.vpsupdate script
in order to run the scan service.
Additionally, the installer will insert a virus database update job to the crontab now.

Hi, first off:
Code: [Select]
avast-rhel-2.2.0-1.x86_64.rpm This is ancient... Unsupported.
I understand you might be "stuck" on centos 6 (which btw is also EOL), so take this as an FYI ;)

In these versions,
Code: [Select]
/var/lib/avast/Setup/avast.setup needs to be run as root. That is the first thing that comes to mind. Otherwise check the access rights to /var/lib/avast and its subdirectories.
