Failed to sync SCAP database


The process of updating the SCAP is looped. As shown in log:

  • all CML files nvdcve-2.0 are loaded,
  • SCAP db starts to rebuild, and is interrupted by error “update_ovaldef_xml: Failed to parse element
  • then process starts to download all XML packages again.

It looks like the reason for the failure is in the definition:

definition id=“oval:org.mitre.oval:def:21169” version=“29” class=“patch”>

Could you please help me to fix the issue?
