I mentioned this to Julian so he has fixed it in the beta. The next
stable will not have this minor problem. The fix is as simple as you
wrote yourself.

The update_virus_scanners scripts looks for all supported scanners
regardless if you have them or not. It's the parent script for all the
wrappers running the actual scanners of which DrWeb is one. You don't
have it so it should just exit quietly but since it can't be executed
you get an error.
