Update in progress

I installed Openvas Version 21.4.1 on Kali Linux 2021.2 but in Feed Status, the message “update in progress” stays all the time. I left it on for more than 8 hours trying to update, but it didn’t update.

Hi, please check logs and if you need help please show it to us. Without logs it is impossible to help.

looks like you have DB problems. Did you used older GVM version before?

This message indicates that gvmd got restarted. It seems gvmd had never enough time to load the SCAP data actually.

Hi,
I have exactly the same problem on a fresh install of version 21.4.3 (on Kali 2021.3).
I tried several times to reinstall the whole system from scratch, but each time I had the same problem.
Did you find a solution ?

Not a solution but just to be sure could you check the free disk space for /var/lib/gvm? You will need several GB of free disk space (10 GB should be safe).

Yes, I had enough free space (> 50GB).
But I think that’s it: I managed to get it to work :slight_smile:
Looks like I didn’t set “Feed Import Owner” to the admin’s UUID, and the result was that the update never managed to complete properly. The GVMD service kept restarting and retrying an update … and thus running in a loop …
In gvmd.log, I had every time.

update_scap: No SCAP db present, rebuilding SCAP db from scratch

But he never seemed to get there.
However, I had tried to do it several times, and try different ways to update the feeds, but I had to get tangled up in the brushes.
Here is the solution that seems to have worked for me:

$ sudo -u _gvm gvmd --get-users --verbose 
admin xxxx-user-uuid-xxxx
$ sudo -u _gvm gvmd --modify-setting 78eceaec-3385-11ea-b237-28d24461215b --value xxxx-user-uuid-xxxx
$ sudo gvm-stop
$ sudo runuser -u _gvm -- greenbone-nvt-sync --rsync
$ sudo greenbone-scapdata-sync 
$ sudo greenbone-certdata-sync
$ sudo reboot

Thanks to you anyway
