Unable to perform an OpenVAS Default scan

Hi Guys,

I’m rather new to linux so bear with me. I’ve had multiple issues which I have resolved (postgres, PID issues) but seem to keep facing one after another .

I’m seeing 'Failed to find config ‘daba56c8-73ec-11df-a475-002264764cea’]

This isn’t helping me much: Failed to find config 'daba56c8-73ec-11df-a475-002264764cea' - 21.04.0)
I have looked in /var for ‘df -h’ but I’m not sure where is /var to look - I’m in the log directory but there is no OpenVas log file.

Why would CVE work but OpenVas not? Can I operate on CVE alone and get full visibility of the vulnerabilities?

Apologies for the silly questions
