If you are using windows firewall or any other firewall, then try to update after disabling it. Avira 9 will not Auto-Update if Windows Defender is present and running. Make windows defender as automatic in scheduler.

Try using preupd.exe utility. OR go into configuration. click General -> Update -> Web server -> Proxy and make the appropriate changes. Make sure that the web server is checked on "use existing connection" and proxy is on "use windows system settings"

Just download hbedv.key. Also visit the Download Server Page of Avira, where that download link is also located. Once you? have downloaded hbedv.key, just copy it to the installation folder of Avira Antivir usually at "CrogramFilesAviraAntiVir PersonalEdition Classic". Replace your old file with your newly downloaded file.
