Avira Software Updater shows you a list of pending updates for your installed software. That is because developers of these products tell us beforehand that an update is going to be released.
This enables us to give our customers advance notice about which of their installed programs are going to be updated. However, we do not know exactly when the developer will roll out the update.
Updates are released gradually, and can also be temporarily stopped/paused by the developer for various reasons.
Configure automatic updates

- Click Automatic updates in the Settings menu and select one of the options:
