I can stop the daemon according to your instructions, but then follow some
other error/PANIC:

jari at jari-PC:~$ /etc/init.d/clamav-freshclam stop
[ ok ] Stopping clamav-freshclam (via systemctl): clamav-freshclam.service.
jari at jari-PC:~$ freshclam
ERROR: Can't open /var/log/clamav/freshclam.log in append mode (check
permissions!).
ERROR: Problem with internal logger (UpdateLogFile =
/var/log/clamav/freshclam.log).
jari at jari-PC:~$ sudo freshclam
