Check /usr/local/psa/var/log/maillog for errors. If it contains errors like the following:
Sep 17 11:29:51 vdnt spamd[7207]: bayes: cannot open bayes databases /var/qmail/mailnames/* R/O: tie failed:

It means that SpamAssasin is not able to read its database. More information along with the resolution path is available on the SA wiki page:

Alternatively recreate SpamAssasin database for all mailboxes with the use of the following commands:
# find /var/qmail/mailnames/*/*/.spamassassin -exec rm -rf {} \;
# /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/mchk --spam-only
