That would appear to be correct at this time.

Not really an issue if you have streaming updates enabled, just look in your avast defs folder and you should see them covering later periods.
WinXP ProSP3/ Core2Duo E8300/ 4GB Ram/ avast! free 18.5.2342/ Firefox ESR, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.11.0/ DropMyRights/ WinPatrol+/ Drive Image 7.1/ SnagIt 10.0/ avast! mobile security
Windows 10 Home 1909 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 19.8.2393 (build 19.8.4793.544) UI-1.0.415/ WinPatrol+/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.11.0/ WinPatrol+/

So,now is Sep 16 ,2019 13:15 in Eastern Europe and the latest def. update is from Sep14.
I understand the "streaming updates" concept ,but what is the point to name the "package" with such precision (-6,that means the sixth package for the day) and not release any other new package for next 2 days????
