fix clamav freshclam failing database updates

If freshclam updates are failing even though the update servers are available and you find error messages like the following in the log you may have outdated or wrong data in freshclams data files:

Copy

Thu Mar 29 13:01:31 2018 -> Downloading daily.cvd [100%] Thu Mar 29 13:01:31 2018 -> ERROR: Verification: Can't verify database integrity

Fix

Go to /var/lib/clamav and move the following files to /tmp:

  • daily.cld
  • main.cvd
  • mirrors.dat

Afterwards restart freshclam and check the log if the update is working now. If yes you can delete the files you moved to /tmp.
