Recently, the Sophos icon started showing it is downloading in my Mac's menu bar. The download icon shows a litle animation with an arrow pointing down. It has not stopped for quite some time now. When I choose the "Show AutoUpdate Window" option, I get a window titled "Sophos AutoUpdate Status" and it shows a download status bar that is all the way at 100%.
Are you using the free trial within Sophos Central? If so it might be the Export Compliance page that you are having difficulties with and we've seen before that ad-blockers can cause some conflict with the sites contents loading. In that case, try disabling your ad-blocker and see if that allows you to proceed with the download.
I'm still unable to download this one poor Linux package. And I'm completely perplexed why downloading free/trial version for Windows or Mac doesn't require passing through all that export compliance checks while the version for Linux, the free version, needs all these extreme formalities. Does the version for Linux contain some secret military technologies which don't exist in the same version for Windows or Mac? [^o)]
Sophos free AV for windows and MAC is not a free version of commercial AV for windows and MAC. That is a completely different product Sophos Home which provides you with a free product for windows and MAC.
The free version of Sophos Linux AV is based on commercial Sophos AV for Linux with some restriction in user or etc, so for that, you need to feel the export compliance form if you want to download the installer. The installer will be downloaded fine after submitting all the information on the export compliance form. I have just downloaded it without any difficulties.
If you have questions at any point during your free trial please visit our knowledgebase, review our how-to videos, documentation, or contact us.

But ultimately, relying on any one app to protect your system, data, and privacy is a bad bet, especially when almost every antivirus app has proven vulnerable on occasion. No antivirus tool, paid or free, can catch every malicious bit of software that arrives on your computer. You also need secure passwords, two-factor logins, data encryption, systemwide backups, automatic software updates, and smart privacy tools added to your browser. You need to be mindful of what you download and to download software only from official sources, such as the Microsoft App Store and Apple Mac App Store, whenever possible. You should avoid downloading and opening email attachments unless you know what they are. For guidance, check out our full guide to setting up all these security layers. 2b1af7f3a8
