From what I've read an antivirus may or may not be needed with Ubuntu. I messed with the error message issue of clam av and clam tk. I did uninstall and reinstall. I even formatted the machine. My guess is the problem lies with my inexperience in dealing with Ubuntu/Linux programs. I failed at getting Avast to work also. Once I did a signature update the engine would not initialize. Luckily for me I tried BitDefender. It installed easily, updates quickly, and scans without incident. I apologize for all the dumb questions.
