Now quoting from the pastebin. This is strange and suspicious:
> debconf: DbDriver "config": /var/cache/debconf/config.dat is locked by another process: Resource temporarily unavailable
dpkg: error processing package clamav-base (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Almost everything else is just fallout from this error.
I suspect the postinst script failed because it couldn't access the
debconf database because it's locked.
Can you figure out why it's locked? Are there any other apt-get install
sessions lying around, waiting for user input? Or a dpkg-reconfigure
running elsewhere? Maybe try fuser /var/cache/debconf/config.dat, see
what processes have it open.
Once you figure out why the debconf database is locked and get it
unlocked (preferably by completing whichever operation that's stuck),
complete the half-finished installation with
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get install -f
and everything should be fine.
