While building openvas 21.04 facing an error while installing

Hi team,
While installing openvas 21.04 we are facing an issue, when we are trying to check ospd-openvas service we are getting the below issue
ospd-openvas.service: Failed at step EXEC spawning /opt/gvm/.local/bin/ospd-openvas: No such file or directory there’s no directory .local
The environment in which we are installing is ubuntu 20.04

There are no .local that is created automatically. Please guide me on how we can solve this issue

Hi @anierudh

Please follow this guide to compare the steps you made and your configuration.


In the case when you are not able to find the relevant solution, describe it here in more detail.

Basically, “.foldername”, in your case “.local” is in Linux hidden folder.
