Okay, it is most definetly the problem of having run two resident AV products simultaneously.

You should run the Avira removal tool

Maybe then run CCleaner.

Delete all leftover Avira folders (if any, make sure also show hidden files are shown in explorer)

Check your PC Date/Time settings and correct if necessary

Reboot

Make a repair installation of Avast (or even better from scratch...)

Reboot.

Test and report back, please.

I uninstalled Avira and re-installed it without the real-time module, and that solved the problem: Avast updates again. You were right, the two online scanner were causing a conflict. Guess I'll be using Avira only for on-demand scans from now on.

Thanks for your help!
