This might not be the right place to get help with Openvas 9 issues, if it is please put it in the right place or let me know
This is on the latest VM image of Kali Linux, which is Debian based.
The scanner hung while scanning a number of machines. Haven’t been able to get it back.
mv /var/cache/openvas /etc/cache/openvas-bak
apt-get remove openvas
apt-get install openvas
edit serive and conf files to change /var/run to /run as /var/run doesn’t exist
ln -s /run /var/run
or the other way around - I never remember the right choice given only 2 options or remember the wrong one
