But not the engine updates. For that, you should install clamav-daemon
every couple of weeks. This is unthinkable for long term support

External software updates are done trough (in case of clamav) external
repositories (which do exists for Debian, and should be set up for
Ubuntu) or (for example, in case of NOD32) trough .deb packages. So, I
don't see what's unusual here?
