[clamav-users] Can't download definitions

I went through your whole 

installation procedure to get the up to date version of clamav, and 
can't download the definitions.

It seems to download most of them but can't download one, and it tries 
three times, and then it fails

So it downloaded main.cvd, daily.cvd, safebrowsing.cvd, and 
bytecode.cvd, but can't download database1.cvd or something, and there 
might be a problem with teh mirrors in my conf file, which didn't 
contain any mirrors and I didn't mess with them if they're there and I 
didn't see them.

At one point it said it couldn't PING clamav.net, and when I tried I 
pinged clamav.net without any trouble.

And when I get my definititions, I need to run clamav now and not when 
it feels like it - how do I exactly do that?   The GUI for the out of 
date version would only let me set up a time to run it.
