Update CVE Database

I just had a look at the CVE database and saw that the 2024 CVEs are not included. Especially the CVE-2024-3094. Is there a possibility in the web portal to load the CVEs manually?

I am using the latest Docker images.

I get the following error on the notus container:

Traceback (most recent call last):

What did you run to try to update the container?
