Most of the time it does. Updating to the last VPS plus all that it comes with the off line update reset or reconfigure Avast! and Automatic VPS updates stert working again. Have to wait for ConfusedCat to reply.

I didn't realise anyone else replied. So sorry it took so long. ^.^;; *points to her words below*

As stated above. The link to manual update worked. Avast! still takes the time to lovingly remind me that definitions I should update my definitions. However, the automatic updates still do not work. I continue to plagued with the same message as the title of this thread. Avast! just cannot seem to establish a connection. Don't think I'll ever quite understand why as nothing else has had a problem doing so. I thank you both for further inquiring. Hope your day is going well.
