Giving us an example of the command you entered that required you to enter a password might help us help you a bit more.

It should be "sudo apt-get install avast"

Nothing is echoed when you type the sudo password for security reasons.

avast not in repository, you must download DEB package from AVAST Website : http://www.avast.com/linux-home-edition.

After update a virus signature , you will see an error:
"An error occured in avast! engine: Invalid argument"

open terminal :
Code: Select all
 gksudo gedit /etc/sysctl.conf

add line kernel.shmmax = 128000000

Reboot.
