Set proxy to "none" and test...

I agree with Tech.  If your on BB, you're most likely not on a proxy.

In addition, if you want your updates to be automatic in the future, go to the Avast UI > Settings (upper right corner) > Updates (left side) > "Engine Virus Update" & "Program" -> change to Automatic.
