I don't know why the ed editor would be required, but it solved the issue for me so I added it as a dependency. You should also have it installed as I added it as a dependency for 1.6.5, so I don't know why it is throwing an error to you.

The package requires the commands hostname and inotifywait, which are provided by the packages inotify-tools and inetutils

It can do both. It's right there in the helptext...

maldet --help|grep update -A1
-u, --update-sigs [--force]
   Update malware detection signatures from

-- -d, --update-ver [--force] Update the installed version from

it can update itself.

AFAIK it can only update malware signatures. It can't update itself or bump its own version. One of the most important changes I care about is that maldet can now send Slack alerts which is quite handy in enterprise environments.

To be fair, once maldet is installed, it can update itself. This is just handy for getting it setup in a way that it can be easily removed from the system.

It's almost a year out of date
