Gvm-tools for GMP 22.5

Hello. We recently updated our security appliance (GSM400) to the latest release, but we’re getting this error now from gvm-cli when running some of our automation scripts against the appliance:

ERROR:gvmtools.cli:Remote manager daemon uses an unsupported version of GMP. The GMP version was 22.5

I ran into this a while back with 22.4 and updating the gvm-tools to the latest version resolved it, but updating to the latest version does not seem to resolve my issue this time around. I upgraded the gvm-tools version this morning and this is the current version we have:

./.local/bin/gvm-cli -V
gvm-cli 24.1.0 (API version 23.5.1)

The most recent version of gvm-tools is 24.1. This issue tracked in GitHub seems to indicate the error is in fact from an outdated (incompatible) version of python-gvm


So, I need to update the python-gvm on my host:

$ python3 -m pip install --user python-gvm --upgrade

…and my scripts are working as expected again. Thanks for the breadcrumb.
