Dear clamav maintainers,

i'm reporting an issue caused by upgrading ClamAV on Debian 8.

We had clamav running, then upgrade to the latest version (from official debian apt repo, of course), then 'clamav-daemon' service cannot be started, the error message from systemctl is:

clamd[2041]: ERROR: Parse error at line 11: Unknown option AllowSupplementaryGroups
clamd[2041]: ERROR: Can't open/parse the config file /etc/clamav/clamd.conf

Since parameter 'AllowSupplementaryGroups' was not supported by the latest ClamAV, the package post-install or post-upgrade script should remove it from config file directly.

And the systemd service has to be re-enabled, or it does not start automatically.

Thanks for your attention and helping. :)
