Hello,

1. Check the current version of clamav installed using the command : rpm -qa | grep clam

2. Install epel-release : yum install epel-release

and then run "yum update clamav"

ClamAV will be updated to latest version.

3. Run freshclam

Now check whether you're still getting the same error.

Hello,

Before doing the above steps make sure there is enough free memory on your server.
