Check WHM > Tweak Settings that the "Max cPanel process memory" is set to at least 512MB or unlimited. If it isn't, increase it to 512MB or unlimited.

At that point, go to WHM > Manage Plugins to see if "clamavconnector" is checked as installed. If it is, uncheck "Install and keep updated" box, then click the "Uninstall clamavconnector" button. After it uninstalls, now go back to Manage Plugins to re-install clamavconnector. It should properly install this time.

What likely happened if you did have clamavconnector previously installed is that it didn't properly complete due to a memory limitation. On systems where only 256MB is available for the cPanel processes, clamavconnector doesn't complete installing, since it requires more memory.
