I have chowned the logs to clamav. When I use the command freshclam I don’t
get any errors, but the program won't update itself. When I use the command
service clamd start I get this error.
service clamd start
Starting Clam AntiVirus Daemon: ERROR: This tool requires libclamav with
functionality level 54 or higher (current f-level: 53)

I had a similar (and probably the same) problem on a CentOS box - it was the
"can't append" freshclam.log error, if I remember correctly.
Anyway, it turns out the freshclam.log files were owned by non-existent
users (like 101 and 100) or something, thus resulting in the permission
denied problem. I'm not sure how or why that happened.
So, you may wish to try finding your freshclam.log files (try "locate
freshclam.log") and see who they're owned by. You'll probably have to use
the chown command.
