I am on Ubuntu, I am trying to install rkhunter.

I've tried

apt-get install rkhunter

success

But then, I did

rkhunter --update

I kept getting

Invalid WEB_CMD configuration option: Relative pathname: "/bin/false"

0

Apparently it is caused by a security update that disabled remote downloading of updates. I have seen the recommendation to replace in /etc/rkhunter.conf:

WEB_CMD="/bin/false" 

with

WEB_CMD=""

However, I don't see the point since the update will fail. I think you should leave it to /bin/false, ignore the message and rely on aptitude for the updates.
