OpenVAS 21.4 on Xubuntu 22.10

Hello bricks, I’m newuser openvas, I’ve installed openvas 21.4 on xubuntu 22.10, and I found the same error like techsec. Do you mean that if there an error “Failed to create user: in user name” is because OS is not reading, it is right?


the Greenbone Community Edition 21.4 is End-Of-Life and therefore shouldn’t be used anymore. Sadly Ubuntu and therefore it’s siblings like Xubuntu don’t ship with up to date or even usable packages. The packages are just broken.

As an alternative you can use our containers or if you are a more experienced Linux user try building from source.
