Freshclam not updating

The complication came with the proliferation of packages that need to be installed, and as always with EPEL, the missing/lost documentation on how the packages were made.

This post is trying to suggest a working solution that can be used to start from scratch with a new installation.

Zimbra updates the Clam AV engine to latest with every release of ZCS.

Users who wish to upgrade Clam AV independently from ZCS at their own risk can find directions here: Clam AV - Updating Version Out of cycle updates RFE is Bug 15137 Note: Clam AV Virus definitions update automatically every 2h by default (zimbra Virus Definitions Update Frequency attribute).

This error simply occurs because Clam AV has a more recent release available than the one that ships with Zimbra.

Updating your Clam AV installation to a version not included with a released ZCS product is not recommended and is not supported.

You told it to search for a file called freshclam and it found the binary in /usr/bin and the config file in /etc/sysconfig.

It also found it in the current release and the previous so it lists both twice.

I also cant start "clamd" service :service clamd start Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start clamd.service Failed to issue method call: Unit clamd.service failed to load: No such file or directory.
