« on: August 26, 2020, 09:40:54 AM »
Background:
 - Running Ubuntu 16.04 server on Oracle VM VirtualBox
 - Installed avast

What I am trying to do:
 - update the definitions using this command:
 
Code: [Select]
0 * * * * /var/lib/avast/Setup/avast.vpsupdate
what went wrong:
Code: [Select]
0: command not found
expected outcome:
some kind of output that shows the definations is updating or updated.

Really appreciate input of where I went wrong

There's no free version for Linux.
