You can compare your settings with this screenshot/attachment. Please make sure that you have "Enable streaming update" ticked/selected.

mine is still 191009-4 and on manual update says "Already up to date"

I have had this problem for some time but it has usually occurred during the weekend and cleared on the monday.

Exactly for me!

The last few weeks there weren't VPS-Updates on Sunday!!!

My settings are the same as the screenshot, thanks.

While i have your attention and as i didn't want to start a new thread if its partof the ongoing problem you  are fixing, could i ask if the current problem is also effecting the  right click (on the system tray icon) and update option, i noticed it doesn't load the update page it sits there with a small circle going round and round (see screenshot below)  i now have to open avast then click menu, settings  and update to get the update page in the screenshot in my earlier reply to appear.

Hi,

I have 191012-6 too & streaming updates on & ok.

Glad to know it's getting fixed.
Thanks for the crucial tips & up-to-date info.

Must have typed a dozen Google searches to finally end up on this "savior" thread lol.  :o  :)

Now I can head up (or down) to bed feeling safe  :D
Good night or day, folks

I have just turned my laptop on and have 19101506 as the last def streamed at 16/10/2019 12.02 - normally the def would be 1910,Current date,00etc so that is now lagging date wise as well.

Streaming updates is on but nothing has been received since 19101506 - ie no streaming for the 16th October which seems strange.

Streaming updates are working.
There is a problem with VPS updates that's been acknowledged by Avast.
So you are still getting updated protection.

My query is that no streaming updates for the 16 October appear in the defs folder - normally there would be 2 by now but there is nothing since 19101506 which is what I'm querying - at least there should be 19101600 ??

Things have got a bit stranger in that the defs folder shows 19101506 as the last stream but with the date and time of 16/10/2019  14.59 ( was 12.02).  It seems any streaming is now being included under 19101506 rather than being 191016XX ?

For me is happening the same.
