Rsync: [sender] change_dir "/vulnerability-feed/22.05/vt-data/nasl" (in community) failed: No such file or directory (2)

Hey there,
I installed the GCE on Ubuntu 22.04 following this howto →
and made an update later to the latest components, like gvmd 22.4.2, openvas 22.5.0 etc
Since that, I am not able to update the NVTs anymore, using
sudo -u gvm greenbone-nvt-sync
gives me the error

receiving incremental file list
rsync: [sender] change_dir “/vulnerability-feed/22.05/vt-data/nasl” (in community) failed: No such file or directory (2)

sent 48 bytes received 141 bytes 378,00 bytes/sec
total size is 0 speedup is 0,00
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1865) [Receiver=3.2.7]
rsync: [Receiver] read error: Connection reset by peer (104)

Anyone got an idea what I am missing, which file to edit or path to create?
The error message shows a path with 22.05, but I also not able to find the same path with 22.04, where NVT updates still worked.

Thanks in advance


it seems that the new openvas-scanner release did break the old bash based nvt sync script.

Please try using instead as a quick workaround.

Thank you! Updated with

python3 -m pip install greenbone-feed-sync

and after that it worked again :slight_smile:
