No real need to continue in that topic, just monitor it and follow the progress (otherwise) of this issue.

Whilst this is in the Avast Business forum, I pretty sure it is the same issue effecting the Avast Free Antivirus / Premium Security products.  So it is being worked on.

Incident Report for Avast Business Managed Antivirus and CloudCare
The VPS feature is currently experiencing delivery issues and we are working to resolve this imminently.
Avast’s threat detection systems consist of multiple layers of security and the automatically streamed updates from the rest of the systems ensure that our users are still fully protected.

Please don't contribute to this Avast Business forum topic in the quote unless you are actually using that product.

It would appear that there has been some progress, we will have to see in the next couple of days.

The size of my defs folder has reduced drastically as I have received an Auto VPS Update 19101506.

Up from what was 19101206 but nothing for today yet.
See https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=229974.msg1522816#msg1522816 of my previous defs folder state.

I apologize again, but now the virus definition update has shifted to 16 October or a day is delayed

No need to apologise, just keep monitoring your system and this topic.  Any changes should be posted here.  That said I haven't seen that change on my systems, but someone else has reported this change to 16 October VPS.
