Kali isn’t running the Greenbone OS (GOS) so i have moved this topic into the correct category.

Your problem might be related to the following topic:

my problem is different with it. after installed, there is no password. so I used gvmd command to set the pasword, but it is not working, it still not login on the web UI

init setup ,there is no password.

Closing as a duplicate of the following two existing topics about the same. Please have a look at the first linked (still open) topic which contains quite a lot discussion around this and follow-up there on further questions.
