Sophos has not supported manual updating of endpoint products on Windows, Mac, Linux or the majority of UNIX platforms for at least the last 10 years and therefore we have now removed the ability to download IDE update packages from our website.
The last product to allow manual updating of virus definition files (IDEs), Sophos Anti-Virus for UNIX version 4, was retired in September 2015. After this retirement we have taken the decision to remove the IDE download packages from our website.
The only supported method of updating non-internet-facing or non-networked machines is via an Air-Gap Update Manager environment. Information on how to configure this can be found in article 64899.
