Probably uninstalling it and re-installing it will fix it. If it's the free version then you could consider Avast. They also have a free version and some folk reckon it is better than AVG.

There is probably an AVG forum that might provide better help.

We have been making some upgrades in our update infrastructure due to the higher than expected demand for the new version AVG2011. These changes caused some hickups and at certain times, the update servers have been overloaded. Should be fixed by now
BTW - you should definitely consider upgrading to AVG2011, it's detection and speed have been further significantly improved and the upgrade is free.

Note: I work for AVG so consider all my posts biased in this respect, please ;)
