Avast is blacklisting ESO's launcher from updating and I would like to know how to stop it from doing that.

It's not so much blocking the launcher but blocking the site URL:Blacklist.

As a temporary fix, try entering the url in the exclusions. under settings > General> Exclusions. This should allow the updater to function until corrected by the virus lab team
