Scanning - VTs list is empty - how can it be fixed

Hello,

I am new in the Greenbone Security Manager. I use the Community Edition iso through VMware Workstation Player 15. I am tasked to use it to perform a simple scan of a web server as a part of a university project. When I try to scan, I am not able to generate a report with results and instead get the error messafe “VTs list is empty”. I understand that it is not able to carry out vulnerability tests because there are no tests available. Does this mean that I did not install GSM correctly?

Please tell me what I would need to do in order to fix that problem.

Please follow the instruction here:

If you have a empty list, it means you did not sync the Community Feed.
