Did you compile the blacklists and check the ownership of the files? From the squidguard site:
squidGuard -C all
chown -R <squiduser> /usr/local/squidGuard/db/*
You may have to do the recursive chown every time you drop in new blacklists and compile.
I have also had to stop both squid and squidguard and start them again to get it working.
You shouldn't have to; squidguard should just "see" the blacklists once they are compiled.
But I have had to do that.
