Description of problem:
After every (yum update) upgrade of clamav, including the latest to 0.97.2, two problems arise, causing e-mail to the system administrator. Both will appear if you simply run freshclam manually:
1) WARNING: Clamd was NOT notified: Can't connect to clamd through /var/run/clamd.scan/clamd.sock
connect(): Permission denied
This can be fixed with "chmod o+x /var/run/clamd.scan", but the rpm shouldn't be mis-setting the permissions.
2) [LibClamAV] Detected duplicate databases /var/lib/clamav/daily.cvd and /var/lib/clamav/daily.cld, please manually remove one of them
This can be fixed by removing both files and running freshclam; this installs the daily.cvd file. When updating, the rpm should replace whichever is installed, not create a conflict. If an update to the newer format is intended, the rpm should either do it or produce an error telling the installer what to do.
Here are the clamav packages that yum updated:

(And a few other packages)
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
