Problem during the installation of OpenVas on Parrot OS.

After running all the commands to install OpenVas I get to the command “gvm-check-setup” and I get this error.
gvm-check-setup 21.4.3 Test completeness and readiness of GVM-21.4.3 Step 1: Checking OpenVAS (Scanner)… ERROR: No OpenVAS Scanner found. FIX: Please install OpenVAS Scanner. ERROR: Your GVM-21.4.3 installation is not yet complete! Please follow the instructions marked with FIX above and run this script again.
How could I solve the problem?
Thank you in advance.

Hello and welcome to this community forum.

Only a few general notes:

  • gvm-check-setup isn’t maintained by Greenbone and might report things falsely / not fully correct
  • If the installation was done based on distro based packages: These might be in an undefined / not working state
  • Version 21.4.x have been already EOL since quite some time and shouldn’t be used in production. It is strongly suggested to use the more recent 22.4.x releases instead when doing a fresh installation

Greenbone maintained documents (e.g. how to install 22.4.x from source or use if on Docker) are available here:
