Norton antivirus 2016 not updating
Open the antivirus program and look for "Update," "Check for updates," "Live Update," or something similar.
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.
Use the steps on this page to make sure that your antivirus program has the newest information about viruses that might infect your computer.
The majority of new antivirus programs (programs or computers purchased after the year 2000) enable users to update their antivirus program through the software.
Here are my LU's ran today - my system has been on all day, please note that if they have run every hour, they have not been listed in History every hour - perhaps because notihing was available for download. Live Update is supposed to check every hour and I am happy with that frequency.
What I am saying is that they may run, but there is nothing to download that was updated, thus no History entry. 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.

Thanks for that.
