Hi cfi. I have installed Kali Linux 2021.1 with GVM 21.4.0 via repositories and guess what…I get the same error after run the scan
Jun 22 11:35:34 gvm ospd-openvas: (process:2896): GLib-WARNING (recursed) **: Invalid UTF-8 passed to g_io_channel_write_chars().
After I downloaded all the feeds and configured de import owner, I did the next few steps:
1-Enter the GSA
2-Configure the timezone
3-Create the target
4-Create the scan task pointing to the target
5-Run the scan

In the followinf lines you could see that I am using GVM 21.4.0:
dpkg -l | grep gvm ii gvm 18.104.22.168~kali4 all remote network security auditor - metapackage and useful scripts ii gvm-tools 21.6.0-0kali1 all Remote control the Greenbone Vulnerability Manager ii gvmd 21.4.0-0kali2 amd64 Manager Module of Greenbone Vulnerability Manager ii gvmd-common 21.4.0-0kali2 all architecture independent files for Greenbone Vulnerability Manager ii libgvm21:amd64 21.4.0-0kali1 amd64 remote network security auditor - shared libraries ii python3-gvm 21.5.2-0kali1 all Greenbone Vulnerability Management Python Library (Python 3)
The error occurs with “Full and fast” scan config
