    Clamav: daemon does not start

    Hi,
    I'm using ubuntu server 18.04.3 64 bit with lxde GUI. As usual, I installed clamav (0.100.3+dfsg-0ubuntu0.18.04.1) and clamtk (5.25-1), but the clamav daemon does not start.
    Code:
    sudo systemctl status clamav-daemon
    ● clamav-daemon.service - Clam AntiVirus userspace daemon
       Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/clamav-daemon.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
      Drop-In: /etc/systemd/system/clamav-daemon.service.d
               └─extend.conf
       Active: inactive (dead)
    Condition: start condition failed at Wed 2019-09-18 09:00:52 CEST; 24min ago
               └─ ConditionPathExistsGlob=/var/lib/clamav/daily.{c[vl]d,inc} was not met
         Docs: man:clamd(8)
               man:clamd.conf(5)
               https://www.clamav.net/documents/
    Log file is empty:
    Code:
    /var/log/clamav/clamav.log.
    The folder
    Code:
    /var/lib/clamav
    contains main.cvd file. I know that I need to run freshclam before to start the daemon. However, it fails to download daily or main files.
    Code:

    Wed Sep 18 09:38:57 2019 -> ^Your ClamAV installation is OUTDATED!

    Wed Sep 18 09:38:57 2019 -> Update failed. Your network may be down or none of the mirrors listed in /etc/clamav/freshclam.conf is working. Check https://www.clamav.net/documents/official-mirror-faq for possible reasons.
    Any idea how to fix it?
    Thank you in advance

    I solved by myself. The issue was related to missing files (daily.cvd, main.cvd) into the folder /var/lib/clamav. I downloaded them via wget and now the clamav daemon works properly.
