Public bug reported:

when using apt-get with the option to preserve  the files this question
should not be asked:


Configuring clamav-freshclam

A new version of configuration file /etc/clamav/freshclam.conf is available, but
the version installed currently has been locally modified.

  1. install the package maintainer's version
  2. keep the local version currently installed
  3. show the differences between the versions
  4. show a side-by-side difference between the versions
  5. show a 3-way difference between available versions
  6. do a 3-way merge between available versions (experimental)
  7. start a new shell to examine the situation

What do you want to do about modified configuration file freshclam.conf?


this happens when doing 
sudo apt-get -q -y -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confold" upgrade
