[22.4 - Docker] Ospd-Openvas shut down

Hello, I installed GSE 22.4 via Docker compose but Ospd-Openvas does not work and just restarts.
In the logs it shows me:

FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘/var/lib/notus/advisories/sha256sums’
OSPD[1] 2022-07-26 14:27:05,040: INFO: (ospd.main) Shutting-down server …

It’s normal that this file is not present since I can’t do the update since it only restarts

Hey ElChercheur!

We can confirm this issue and are working on a solution! Thank you for reporting!


There seems to be a small issue with ospd-openvas. Can you stop the ospd-openvas container and do a sync without having a running ospd-openvas? If you are following our guide the commands are

docker-compose -f $DOWNLOAD_DIR/docker-compose.yml -p greenbone-community-edition stop ospd-openvas
docker-compose -f $DOWNLOAD_DIR/docker-compose.yml -p greenbone-community-edition run --rm ospd-openvas greenbone-nvt-sync
docker-compose -f $DOWNLOAD_DIR/docker-compose.yml -p greenbone-community-edition up -d

Hello, your solution works thank you


If it helps, the full error is
