Uninstall and reinstall the product and rerun everything again?

First off, the version of SAV you are running has a well-known security vulnerability.  My advice:  upgrade to the current version of SAV and, in the process, you'll likely eliminate the error you are receiving.

From your information, I think it may occurs from many causes such as :
1. No more space in your harddisk
2. Administrator permission may be losed by some application e.g. zonealarm
3. Some security application may block a part of updating steps
4. ...

First, you try to download the Virus definition from www.symantec.com directly. Afterthat, you install it by yourself. If it can work completely, I think you should check Liveupdate App. or reinstall all new.

Try this workaround:
Run a tool to remove the damaged files
After the removal tool runs, restart your computer and run LiveUpdate
You can download the tool from the link

The other option is to upgrade you current version to 10.1.7.700
