No CVE/NVT displayed in Dashboard or in SecInfo menu

Hope this topic is in the right place.
System: Arch Linux.

No NVTs or CVEs are displayed in the dashboard or in the dropdown menu of SecInfo.
Pic is my dashboard after installation:

Below is the install script I cobbled together from Arch Linux guides and other non-arch linux install and troubleshooting guides:

#Add your commands below.
sudo systemctl stop firewalld
sudo pacman -S redis
sudo pacman -S openvas
sudo pacman -S greenbone-security-assistant
sudo pacman -S gvm-libs
sudo pacman -S gvmd
sudo chown dave:dave -R /var/lib/gvm
sudo chmod 777 -R /var/lib/gvm
gvm-manage-certs -a
sudo greenbone-nvt-sync
sudo gvmd --create-user=dave --role=Admin
echo GVMD user created
sudo gvmd --user=dave --new-password=dave
echo GVMD user password created
#additonal commands:
gvm-manage-certs -f
gvm-manage-certs -L
gvmd --get-scanners
sudo gvmd --modify-scanner "08b69003-5fc2-4037-a479-93b440211c73" --scanner-ca-pub /var/lib/gvm/CA/cacert.pem --scanner-key-pub /var/lib/gvm/CA/clientcert.pem --scanner-key-priv /var/lib/gvm/private/CA/clientkey.pem
systemctl start redis
systemctl start gsad
sudo gvmd -p 9390 -a
sudo gsad -f --listen= --mlisten= --mport=9390

Below is the service script I put together:

systemctl start redis
systemctl start gsad
sudo gvmd -p 9390 -a
sudo gsad -f --listen= --mlisten= --mport=9390

I do not know what is wrong.
Any help is more than welcome.
Merry Christmas, David.

If you don’t get any CVEs and NVTs showing up there then this means that the feed sync hasn’t finished yet or wasn’t successful at all.

Hi and thanks for the reply.
I was under the impression that after the following commands are issued:

sudo greenbone-nvt-sync

That the feed would be updated because of the “sync” on the end of each line?

This depends on the following:

If the scripts are not successful (e.g. network problems, missing tools, setup problems, …) then the feed isn’t/can’t be synced.

You could try to re-run the commands and check their output to see if they have indeed have done a successful sync. Checking all GVM daemons if they are running as expected and their log files might be additional possibilities.

I have also noticed that you’re starting the gsad twice which isn’t correct. There could be additional problems in your setup causing the seen trouble.
