You can use avastgui to update the antivirus database file. avastgui saves the file 400.vps in your home directory ~/.avast/.
2. Update the antivirus database with Windows
Update the antivirus database with the Avast graphical user interface.
Right mouse click at the Avastball bottom right in the taskbar.
Then click at Update and then iAvast

AVG Antivirus for Linux
