Hello Community,
After updating to 20.08 i get following error by viewing every report:

Rejection: An internal error occurred while getting a report. The report could not be delivered. Diagnostics: Failure to receive response from manager daemon.



md manage:WARNING:2020-09-09 16h06.28 CEST:32167: manage_send_report: mkdtemp failed
md    gmp:   INFO:2020-09-09 16h06.28 CEST:32167:    Failed to parse client XML: Internal Error.

BTW: If I start an scan the following entry appears in ospd-scanner.log:

2020-09-09 16:20:53,516 OSPD - openvas: DEBUG: (ospd.server) New connection from /opt/gvm/var/run/ospd.sock
2020-09-09 16:20:53,528 OSPD - openvas: DEBUG: (ospd.server) Client closed the connection

2020-09-09 16:21:53,362 OSPD - openvas: DEBUG: (ospd.server) New connection from /opt/gvm/var/run/ospd.sock

Does that have anything to do with each other?
Any ideas?
Thanks for help :slight_smile:

Any thoughts on this? Iā€™m seeing the same issue on a clean install on Kali.
