trying to run freshclam

You don't run "freshclam" yourself. You simply activate a service or a cronjob
that does that for you, and already has the appropriate permissions.

Telcontar:~ # systemctl status freshclam.service
● freshclam.service - Freshclam virus definitions downloader
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/freshclam.service; *enabled;* vendor
preset: disabled)
Active: active (running) since Sat 2017-07-08 18:08:12 CEST; 3 weeks 6 days
ago
Main PID: 3349 (freshclam)
Tasks: 1 (limit: 512)
CGroup: /system.slice/freshclam.service
└─3349 /usr/bin/freshclam -d



And if you need to do it manually, you do it as root.
