I have two questions. I found ClamTK in the Software Center. Is this just a GUI for ClamAV or is ClamAV included?

Secondly, there are many websites that say ClamAV can be downloaded from the Software Center. Example: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ClamAV

I am unable to find it in the Software Center. Does that mean that it was removed? If so, why?

    Well, it's still in the repos. sudo apt-get install clamav works for me. – You'reAGitForNotUsingGit Nov 29 '16 at 15:40
  • After you install ClamTK you will, most likely, face some errors when updating and running it for the first time, in such case, come back and ask on this site. – M. Becerra Nov 29 '16 at 16:40

clamav is still available in the repositories. Simply install it via sudo apt-get install clamav.

It appears that the software-center(s) [especially gnome-software] do not show all packages - I believe it actually only shows packages with graphical user interfaces.

ClamTK is a graphical front-end for ClamAV and pulls along the needed packages as clamav on installation.

If you want a full blown "old-school" graphical package manager I recommend you to go with Synaptic.
