I'm running a CentOS freash out of Azure, with ClamAV installed on it, by running the following commands:

  yum install -y epel-release
  yum install -y clamav

When installed, I'm running the following command to update the various databases: freshclam

I get the following output (Last part of the output):

ERROR: Database test FAILED.
ERROR: Unexpected error when attempting to update database: daily

ERROR: Update failed.

I find it weird that no other has had the same issue using the distro, as I have not any super specific steps, just followed steps from the page. Hope someone is able to help me...
