I notice I'm not receiving anti-virus update notifications after upgrading to v21.0.2.

From the release notes:
[24452] AntiVirus - Improved update notifications for Cyren AV and ClamAV.

Does this mean the per-update notifications were removed?

Actually, when since using 21.0.2, we do not get ANY ClamAV update. Logfile states: ERROR: No DatabaseMirror or PrivateMirror servers...

Same here... since upgrading to 21.0.2, I get daily warnings about ClamAV updates not being current, but the logs and even the email itself seem to indicate that they are:

That's an older set of data I grabbed from a few days ago, but here's the current (8/7/21) settings.ini showing the actual signature date is still from July 14 (the Security | Antivirus | AV Updater GUI panel confirms the same 7/14 date):

Does this mean that updates are happening fine AND ClamAV hasn't updated the signatures in 3 weeks?? The latter seems unlikely.

There's no freshclam.conf file in there, so I can't manually run freshclam.exe to update and don't want to break anything in MDaemon by making one without direction. It's worth noting that when I DO clone that directory st

    [reposting the last bit since it keeps getting chopped from my previous post]

    There's no freshclam.conf file in there, so I can't manually run freshclam.exe to update and don't want to break anything in MDaemon by making one without direction. It's worth noting that when I DO clone that directory structure and manually update, it definitely shows a gap between what MDaemon has and what's available:
