Failing Scanner and CVE's not showing up in Dashboard

Can anyone help me with this? I have reinstalled this like 20 times and cannot get a scan to work.

You need to find out why your ospd-openvas is not listening to /tmp/ospd.sock:

Either ospd-openvas is listening on another file socket or the ospd-openvas is not running at all.

Now the NVTs in Page SecInfo is empty (CVEs and CPEs have data)

Your socket location my be wrong, use netstat to check for your listening socket.

Please read the output of the command carefully

  -u UNIX_SOCKET, --unix-socket UNIX_SOCKET
                        Unix file socket to listen on. Default:

and afterwards look again at your log messages.
