I recently installed clamtk using the software center and apparently I didn't know that there is a bug of some kind that keeps the anti virus engine at version 0.98.1 but I at least have to have 0.98.3 something for the GUI update to work, so I removed the clamav and clamtk using this methods: method 1 and this: method 2

then I reinstall using the sudo apt-get install clamav clamtk or something then I input freshclam to update but when updating via terminal I always get the warning antivirus engine version 0.98.1 must be at least 0.98.3, and I can't seem to remove the clamtk an clamav correctly, how do I remover clamav and clamtk completely?

just a copy of the codes in the terminal:

P.S sorry for pasting the code, but I just feel that maybe a clue can be seen by looking at it... and thank you to those who will, i'm really bothered by those line that says this (folder name) is not empty so not deleted, cause after removing clamav and clamtk some of their files still appear on the file>computer window when i type the name clam on the search bar. –  Woo May 11 at 21:34
