Ospd-openvas failing to install

Using a clean fresh brand new machine and following the docs, I’m getting an error I can’t get past.

I’ve just tried to take a look at your problem but following the docs I wasn’t able to reproduce the issue. Maybe the installed pip version for the user is to old? Could you try running python3 -m pip install -U pip and try again the steps from the docs?
