"Your Avast Free Antivirus license will expire in 7 days" Message

I'm getting "Your Avast Free Antivirus license will expire in 7 days" message.

I thought it didn't expire as long as I'm using the free limited antivirus and I can't afford to pay for the premium. Can I reinstall it?

At the end of each year you need to essentially renew the free registration.

There should be a popup that allows you to do that, was there nothing in that notification ?

I attached two images of previous renewal/notifications did you get anything like this/these  ?
Its been a while since I had to do this and the User Interface may have changed.
