CLAMAV error - can't apply patch

Hello @stephdl and @support_team

I’ve been receiving the following emails from my Nethserver related to ClamScan.

Subject: Cron /usr/share/clamav/freshclam-sleep > /dev/null
ERROR: cdiff_apply: lseek(desc, -350, SEEK_END) failed
ERROR: downloadPatch: Can’t apply patch

Any idea what this message is telling me? Is this related to downloading CLAMAV definitions not allowed to be installed?

Thank you,

Please read


Hi @stephdl,

Whoops! I missed this post! Thanks very much for pointing me in the right direction.

Any indication on what this means for my CLAMAV running on Nethserver? Is it working?

Thank you.

Salut @stephdl,

Aren’t you on holiday in Spain ?


Yes I am…just out of a canyon. I am tired
