open a terminal, such as xterm and type:

su
your password
rpm -ivh <packagenamehere>.rpm

and it will either install, or give you a message as to why it can't, such as dependencies missing...

I assume you mean the avg antivirus program. If you are only using Linux you can do without it because most antivirus programs for linux actually check for windows viruses so that they are not passed on to windows users in environments where multiple operating systems are in use. If you are installing on a mail server that will be accessed by windows users then by all means use it.

There is a problem with some scripts contained in your rpm package and they are preventing it from being installed properly. You will need to get an updated rpm or install your program from source.

Download the file from the maintainer or site you downloaded the previous one from. Choosing the rpm is your choice.
