and I get a lot of failed connection messages in the bottom right hand corner.

Have you checked your firewall settings?

I get similar messages when i`m either not online or when I`m browsing/mailing. I have also had it when updating other anti-malware or Firefox Add-ons. Even if I update manually the auto update will sometimes try to function at the same time and cause the message to appear.

If it were the firewall it is possible that no updates would be available, so I think it is one of the things AVG suffers from.

AVG seem to issue their updates early afternoon (GMT). I think that their servers get so busy - or they may be prioritizing their paid for customers - that if you try to update at that time,or if you are set to auto update at that time, you often get a failure to connect. Leaving it for a hour or two and trying again usually works.

It does seem to be a recurring issue with AVG 8.0:
