after checking for updates avast! always requires a system restart (in case of no update too)

What avast! version and VPS file (virus database) number, e.g. 0436-4 (see about avast!) are you using?

If it is not 4.5.549, then do a manual program update. This and most program updates (not iAVS) require a system restart, you don't have to do it right then, but it is needed for the changes to be effective. Monitor your future manual updates it and see if the problem is resolved (I did have this happen some time ago, but was resolved on a program update).
Windows 10 Home 2004 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 20.8.2432 (build 20.8.5684.602) UI-1.0.564/ WinPatrol+/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security
