Norton Doesn't Seem To Be Updating Automatically

Anyone else have a recent issue with Norton not seeming to update on it's own?  The manual update works fine, but if several hours go by and I check it with the manual update, I get 5-6 updates when normally there's none or maybe one update, tops.

Aside from that, Norton seems to be working OK, and I'm always checking with the manual update, but I'd like to know if anyone else has been experiencing something similar within the last four or five days?

I clicked the "Get Support" and Norton ran the self scan thing and said there wasn't any problem with the installation.

There have been issues reported already where background tasks, including LiveUpdates have not been running correctly with the latest version update.
