Report outdated / end-of-life Scan Engine / Environment (local) GVM libs version 21.4.1

Hello Guys,

Could you please help me with this case?

Thank you in advance,

today I successfully updated from 21.4.1 to 21.4.3 aswell.

Basically for every update the steps are the same ones as the ones which you used for the initial setup.

Just make sure to read all of the release notes for the components and do needed modifications if there are some “breaking changes” in the corresponding update.

Best regards
