try doing a repair via control panel.

control panel

add and remove programs

select avast

select uninstall/change

in the setup screen,scroll down and select repair

then reboot and try updating again.

For a couple of days we have seen reports about the full VPS (for off-line updates) failing. I have not yet come across some official response or comment. It may take some days for Avast Software to resolve whatever the problem is.

BTW, the current stable version of avast Free/Pro/IS is 6.0.1367.

I'll try the updater personally and check what I get.

Once the fix is in, I'm sure we'll all know about it.
Till then there isn't anything any of us can do to make it work.
Find a place with internet access and update the usual automatic way.
If your system is clean and you're not on-line, you should be OK.
