Why does ClamAV / freshclam complain about not being able to update its virus database?

freshclam is part of ClamAV and responsible for downloading virus database updates at regular intervals.

Sometimes the update servers are simply not reachable and thus, the update will only happen the next time.

Usually availability is restored quickly, but sometime it can take even a day or two.

It’s the nature of the internet and nothing to worry about.
