Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

amavisd failed to start because /etc/mailname does not exist. You can work around this by creating it, i.e.

    sudo hostname -fqdn > /etc/mailname

Of course, it shouldn't fail because of that. amavasd-new-2.6.5/debian/etc/conf.d/05-domain_id should be fixed to call hostname or use /etc/hostname when /etc/mailname does not exist, as postfix does.

I tried sudo <myhosts_name> -fqdn > /etc/mail (I substituted my hosts name in the angle-brackets) and got (after entering my password) [/etc/mail is my mail_directory]:

sudo <myhosts_name>: command not found

I even tried: hostname -fqdn > /etc/mailname and got:
bash: /etc/mailname: Permission denied

Trying sudo hostname -fqdn > /etc/mail got me:
bash: /etc/mail: Is a directory

What or where am I doing wrong?

I am using Ultimate Edition 3.0 Gamer as a virtual machine on VMware Workstation v7.1.5 build-491717 on Windows 7 64-bit (host OS).

Ubuntu 11.04 as I only like the classic mode and 11.10 was like a virus to use:

 I can not use Synaptic Package Manger now, I reloaded from CD 11.04 October 28, 2011. Prior to this reload, a security update for flash dated April 16, 2012 would just half load and then I could not close it just froze. This all start when some Ass this forum gave me a entry for Terminal to update ClamAV as the Clam TK kept read out of date and has done so for a while. The update screwed my whole computer up. Now the reload does not even work correctly to fix this.. I f you jerks can not explain things step by step or non geek terms don't offer suggestions to help.

When I politely stated this prior about the ClamAv 0.97.4 update not working he or she just blamed it all back on me, well now I say FUCK OFF to that particular person - so I will just have to SUCK it up and BUY the new Windows 8 and say bye bye. I just hate MS but at least the jerks on that end don't blame it on the NON GEEK USER. YEs I use cut and paste for the pricks update to Clam AV

YES THE CD was scanded OK prior to installation
