ClamTK GUI does not update anymore

The last performed update dates 2022-12-04
(ClamTK GUI and all other dependencies are from the official repositories)


Does anyone know why it’s stuck since than?

What do you get from: systemctl status clamav-freshclam clamav-daemon.service?

I know what you mean, but the daemon services were never activated as I use ClamTK manually ever since. I manually scan if needed and I update the signatures manually, but those signatures do not update anymore since the mentioned date!

Anyway, that’s the output here

systemctl status clamav-freshclam clamav-daemon.service
○ clamav-freshclam.service - ClamAV virus database updater
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/clamav-freshclam.service; disabled; preset: disabl>
     Active: inactive (dead)
       Docs: man:freshclam(1)

○ clamav-daemon.service - Clam AntiVirus userspace daemon
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/clamav-daemon.service; disabled; preset: disabled)
     Active: inactive (dead)
TriggeredBy: ○ clamav-daemon.socket
       Docs: man:clamd(8)

I don’t know exactly what is going on. With the services off, you can update the databases whenever you want to with sudo freshclam.

I didn’t know this was actually still a thing.

Thanks, I did that and it updated the signatures via terminal, but when I start the GUI it still shows the old date as in the screenshot above. That must be bug in the latest GUI, cause it work before on manual update (I never had the daemon services activated).
