NVT feed update

Hi there!

After upgrading to GVM-11 we have an issue with updating NVT feed.
It is not displayed on the Feed Status page.

/usr/local/bin/greenbone-nvt-sync --feedversion returns 202006120920. --selftest, --verbose, --identify, --rsync returns nothing. --feedcurrent returns:

How can we fix the update process and status displaying?

Hi, look at GVM11 – installation, how people sync DB maybe it will help. Comment in the end about sync.

I managed to partially fix it. Thanks Chris for the comment: removing $install_prefix/var/run/feed-update.lock allowed to update NVT. greenbone-nvt-sync --feedversion now shows actual version. But it is still not displayed with WebUI for some reason. I assume it is about permissions: this feed updates by gvm user while others by root, but gsad --drop-privileges=gvm didn’t help.
