Norton antivirus 2016 not updating
It should be noted that some developers require you to know what version you are running to get updates.
Below are links to web pages for some of the more popular antivirus programs.
So I ran that update manually, hoping that a fix for the issue will be included.
Unfortunately, this was not the case and, since that update yesterday, Live Update has not auto-downloaded anything else. " Automatic Live Update is on, but pulse updates are off" Set Pulse Updates to ON, LU will check every 5-15 mins, if no joy, then try to use the NRn R tool, https://support.norton.com/sp/en/us/home/current/solutions/v60392881_End User Profile_en_us as maybe Norton do not function properly.
Let's not forget that there are situations when a bad update is issued that screws things up and by not having updates every few minutes, I self-insure that way. https://support.norton.com/sp/en/us/norton-internet-security/22.214.171.124/solutions/v15467109_NIS_Retail_2014_en_us "By default, Automatic Live Update checks for updates every hour when your computer is connected to the Internet." Thanks for that.
If I was using my PC, I might have found that from the help links. Try clicking on Support - Get Support to run Autofix to check your Norton installation and fix what it finds.
The Norton Update Center is now downloading a small, secure program called "Auto Detect Pkg.exe".
If that does not find anything, it may be worth getting a refreshed installation using the Norton Removal and Reinstall tool Be sure you read the Before you Begin section, and run Live Update manually a few times, rebooting as necessary, until no updates are available.
Just a FWIW - if Live Update runs and there are no updates - there will not be an entry in your History that shows that Live Update ran and found no updates.

The majority of new antivirus programs (programs or computers purchased after the year 2000) enable users to update their antivirus program through the software.
