|Summary||0004028: yum/dnf thinks clamav-freshclam obsolete but no documentation at ClamAV of such|
|Description||On a fully updated Rock 9.2 system, I run yum/dnf check-updates in the evening of 28aug23. It tells me that a new clamav is available and that it is obsoleting freshclam. There is no notice of freshclam being obsoleted at clamav website or anywhere online. Given freshclam is the way the database/signatures get updated, this strikes me as "this doesn't feel right". Given that Clamav site has nothing, I am wondering if these is something in the packaging for dnf/yum that isn't right|
Screenshot of what I am seeing included.
Thanks in advance

This behavior appears to be normal. https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/clamav/blob/epel9/f/clamav.spec#_198 - clamav-freshclam (which is the name of the package) obsoletes clamav-update, which was the original name of the package. This makes sure that clamav-update is sufficiently replaced by clamav-freshclam.
The clamav packages are not provided by Rocky Linux. They are provided by EPEL. Further questions about clamav (and other EPEL packages) should come here: https://discussion.fedoraproject.org/ - General Rocky Linux questions should come here: https://forums.rockylinux.org
Closing as not a bug.
The only reason I am re-opening this case is to thank you for explaining what is going on. I have never seen this message (?new to dnf?) and mis-read it as "obsoleting freshclam" rather than "freshclam obsoletes clamav-update". All I can say is "opps" and accept the egg on my face.
ps: i will let you close bug to make sure you get this reply from me
