This set a little trap for me. For some reason, clamav, which I did request, was not shown as requested. So, when I ran reclaim, it was removed. I was puzzled at first when freshclam started to fail. I’ve reinstalled clamav now and all is well. Is there some reason why clamav would not be flagged as requested?
