Err:7 jammy Release


We are building openvas according to the instructions on the official Greenbonecomunity website.
We are getting the following error in the “Installing Common Build Dependencies” procedure.

Ubuntu 22.04

E: The repository ‘Index of /mrazavi/openvas/ubuntu jammy Release’ does not have a Release file.

A review of the error indicates that information is not being obtained from a specific repository.
If anyone knows the cause of this, I would appreciate comments.



first of all please format your post accordingly to Start Here - #3 by bricks for better readability.

Second your issue has nothing to do with our software. You added a Ubuntu PPA (for Ubuntu Packages of our software mrazavi/openvas) which seems to be not available anymore. Just remove the PPA and do an apt update afterwards.


Please don’t take this as an offense:

If support for such basic operating system mis-configuration is required it is strongly recommended to not start with such a complex software like the Greenbone product stack and choose a different and less complex software as a start.

The ready to use VM available at Greenbone Enterprise TRIAL 14 days for free - Greenbone could be also an option for testing / first steps.

I can also add that OpenVas/GVM is not supported in the default Ubuntu package repository. Only Kali Linux still maintains native Greenbone install packages.
