Avast Web shield blocks apt-get upgrade
« on: July 16, 2020, 03:18:54 PM »

I've been using both avast and virtual box for several months and never had any problems, now when I try to run apt-get upgrade (in Linux) avast web shield blocks the upgrade due to URL:BLacklist, I tried to whitelist VBox in Avasts exceptions but the problem persists.

This is really annoying since I need to use Linux and not being able to upgrade it will make it impossible to use.
What can I do (other than disabling web shield entirely)?

Kind regards

I think you should be posting your question re Avast and Linux in the business product section here:
