osu! version: 20170222.3 (latest)

It should take a little bit to update, but normally a restart should fix it. Is it still not updating?

I solved the problem by going in the game options and then go to maintenance and click the Run osu! updater.It will close the game and then it will restart with your new avatar. 8-) I think I helped you shiranui48

When did you change it? It can take a while to update on the client, but if it changed on the website you shouldn't have to worry

Sorry for not answering guys.Strange that it didn't helped but it worked for me.You shouldn't reinstall the game because you will lose the songs but not your achievements and ranks.I had reisntalled the game because i had a problem with saving the songs(because i didn't open them with the game client) and i know that you keep your progress but not the songs.If it doesn't fix with nothing else either with the way i told you or from the options of the game reinstall the client.But i don't guarantee you that it will fix even then.I just hope that you will fix the problem and keep playing the game because it's worth it.

I found a way how to fix your problem.

Navigate to your osu! directory and look for Data folder (It's a hidden folder, so you should set the visibility of hidden folders in system settings first). Afterwards, there is a folder called simply "a" full of files without any extension. Find the number by your profile ID (in your case it is 7856087) and restart osu. The avatar should be finally changed. Try it and let me know if you succeeded.

I've found my osu!ID, then what should I do before I restart the client?

I forgot to write you have to delete it. Forgive my stupidity. Then it should be fine.
