clamav does not suggest a non-free package, only a non-existent one.

@mak Please drop our fork of clamav and let in the Debian package which complies fine with GNU FSDG.

When addressed, this issue should be flaged as "invalid" (not "resolved").

2018-08-26 10:28:51 - WARNING: clamav: Target version '0.100.1+dfsg-1pureos1' is newer/equal than source version '0.100.1+dfsg-1'.
This needs a manual dummy upload as described in https://tracker.pureos.net/T99#10198 to reset our package to what Debian ships.

I'll once again raise my point regarding "Freedom harm" tagged issues. According to https://www.gnu.org/distros/free-system-distribution-guidelines.en.html:

A free system distribution must not steer users towards obtaining any nonfree information for practical use, or encourage them to do so.

Programs in the system should not suggest installing nonfree plugins, documentation, and so on.

Although not available in PureOS libclamunrar7 is a non-free package available in other repos.

This package - when redistributed in PureOS - does not suggest installing any nonfree packages (only a non-existing package).

@mak Do I understand correctly that clamav can now be removed without the need for a dummy package?

Revert to track only freedom issue (not the related issue of it not being a freedom issue after all).
