Here ya go. I don't know which packages you need. Click on this link and
scroll down and there is clamassassin, clamav, clamav-base, clamav-daemon,
clamav-data, clamav-freshclam, clamav-get files.
when you click on each package link, it will take you to another page, scroll
to the bottom and choose your architecture to download the .deb files.
