Cannot log in to OpenVAS (Error in the push function)

Can anyone help me out here?

I’ve got an older version of OpenVAS which has some reports I neglected to download. Now I can’t log into the durned thing!

/var/log/openvas/openvasmd.log shows:

lib serv:WARNING:2018-10-11 20h45.02 utc:15114: Failed to gnutls_bye: Error in the push function.

Every time I try to log in.

I have changed the “admin” user’s password at the CLI. Seemed to work. Nothing.
I setup a NEW admin and used the provided password. No luck.

Can someone help me get this thing working again, please?
