I installed GVM from source, but after apt-update and apt upgrade things stopped working. I tried git pull on all and recompile, but without success.
Is it possible -and if so how- to remove the GVM software but keep the database ??
The idea is to clone compile and install GVM ‘fresh’ but keep the data

Thanks, Anton
