Avira antivir not updating automatically
I cannot update Avira, even when I disactivate the firewall Avira Free Antivirus Updater : The update failed! Last time I switched on the ***** thing was 5 days ago, and then it updated.
Error message: An error occured during the file download.

Since I am not really doing much with the laptop anyway, I could wait, no problem.
I am just alarmed if it does not happen, and I cannot find the reason.
This utility creates an archive (fuse bundle) containing the latest engine, the Avira VDF update files and the corresponding Avira antivirus update control files (info.gz).Ah, found this: Generally, the antivirus software installed contact the servers and downloads the required files automatically.At times, due to the servers being saturated or problems cropping up with downloading the files Maybe this is something that just happens sometimes, and I will update later when the servers are less busy?If you don’t move the files and simply overwrite them with the new Avira update files, the product might behave strangely or even malfunction.Once the old files are set aside, unpack the archive and the restart or reload the product.
In other words, you no longer have to download an entire archive for each engine and signature update.
