ClamTk 5.20 not behaving well 16.04 Desktop x86

Have used ClamAv and ClamTK for sometime and they usually had been excellent. Since update to 16.04 ClamTK has stopped offering threat removal and one has to resort to command-line AV scanner.

Wonder if that is a general issue or I need to look for a fix.

HI @Al_Salem,

have you done a full system update as mine works no problem!:

Yes, update and upgrade are applied on regular basis.

HI @Al_Salem,

try changing your software sources download location and updating again, it might help?. :smiley:

Did many of that and purge reinstall. May be a user account issue.

installed files according to synaptic ClamTK propertie :

Hi Al,

sorry but that doesn’t really help me at all!. :frowning:

Try the following terminal command (Ctrl + Alt + t) and then a restart and see if it helps:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt get remove calmav clamtk && sudo apt-get install clamav clamtk

Tried remove and reinstall as above and am currently on – uname -a $HP-Pavilion-dv2700-Notebook-PC 4.4.0-36-generic #55-Ubuntu SMP Thu Aug 11 18:00:59 UTC 2016 i686 athlon i686 GNU/Linux.

Yet has to use command line clamscan to remove malware. Nonetheless, can use clamtk GUI to update freshclam.
