Hi,

I just tested installing avast on debian stretch (64bit) - and it installed smoothly and runs!
The one tiny thing which bit me, was that the path for 'scan' changed from '/bin' to '/usr/bin' (had the '/bin/scan' hardcoded) - but I think that's ok in a major version jump (and it's in the ChangeLog).

Thanks for resolving this!!

I guess that from now on the repositories (for Debian) will be named 'debian-$codename' ? (i.e. deb http://deb.avast.com/lin/repo debian-buster release for the upcoming debian 10)

Hello,
I am glad it works. It was a mistake to ever put our binaries to /bin .Yes, we plan to name the repository like you have mentioned. Not sure about CentOS though :)
Kind regards,
