    OpenVAS removed by recent update - ho do I get it back?

    After an update was run on July 30th, I noticed OpenVAS was removed. I tried to reinstall it, but apt-get is unable due to a dependency conflict. A shared library conflicts with another shared library or something??

    Anyway, I guess my question is: Is this intentional on the part of the Devs? Did the Devs even know about this? I mean, is OpenVAS depreciated now or something?? I was just starting to use it, and now I can't! Is there an easy way to get it back??

    there was a Message during the upgrade process that it has been renamed to GVM and you have to install it manually.
    so you can get it back by:

    sudo apt-get install gvm

    i don't know if it works, because i did not use it

    WARNING: The Redis Database doesn't exist
