Looking through my logs, I see the following...  I cant really tell if its updating or not.

That's the ClamAV software version. You need to update that yourself.

19:10:48.296 5 EXTFILTER(CGPClamAV) inp(088): * main.cvd is up to date (version: 57, sigs: 4218790, f-level: 60, builder: amishhammer)

That's the core stable baseline set of signatures.

19:10:51.852 5 EXTFILTER(CGPClamAV) inp(054): * Retrieving

That's the 'freshclam' program trying to download a daily changeset of new/removed/modified signatures

[irrelevant lines snipped]

19:11:21.898 5 EXTFILTER(CGPClamAV) inp(047): * Trying host (

Fairly common: resolves to many different addresses, and sometimes the first one tried is down (e.g. getting into synch, perhaps) so the 'freshclam' program tries another one.

19:11:22.148 5 EXTFILTER(CGPClamAV) inp(121): 517 ADDHEADER "X-CGP-ClamAV-Result: CLEAN\eX-VirusScanner: Niversoft's CGPClamav Helper v1.18.4a (ClamAV engine v0.98.4)"

Irrelevant because those record the helper telling CGP to add a CLEAN header to a message and CGP actually doing it. Independent of the updating process.

Since you are due to update the ClamAV software (over a year overdue, actually...) you should do that, hen run the newly-installed version of freshclam to make sure the signature database gets updated. It may have been updated automatically successfully, but the log lines you included don't show that succeeding.
