gvm-check-setup 22.4.0
  Test completeness and readiness of GVM-22.4.0
Step 1: Checking OpenVAS (Scanner)... 
        OK: OpenVAS Scanner is present in version 22.4.0.
        OK: Notus Scanner is present in version 22.4.1.
        OK: Server CA Certificate is present as /var/lib/gvm/CA/servercert.pem.
Checking permissions of /var/lib/openvas/gnupg/*
        OK: _gvm owns all files in /var/lib/openvas/gnupg
        OK: redis-server is present.
        OK: scanner (db_address setting) is configured properly using the redis-server socket: /var/run/redis-openvas/redis-server.sock
        ERROR: redis-server is not running or not listening on socket: /var/run/redis-openvas/redis-server.sock
        FIX: You should start the redis-server with 'systemctl start redis-server@openvas.service' or configure it to listen on socket: /var/run/redis-openvas/redis-server.sock

 ERROR: Your GVM-22.4.0 installation is not yet complete!

Please follow the instructions marked with FIX above and run this
script again.
