This morning I accepted an update to Gmail 4.3 on my Nexus 4 and Avast! security reported a problem -- malware detected: "Android: FakeInst-EY"

I uninstalled Gmail, reverting to the factory version 4.2.2

Just ran a full scan and now Avast! says same problem with 6 other apps

This seems a bit odd! Anyone else got similar?

Yes I got exactly the same warning but didn't uninstall Gmail owing to the fact that it is the official app of Gmail. I think someone else reported it as malware and that's why we might me getting the same warning. I don't knowhpw to solve the issue, though.
