I have Greenbone and OpenVAS installed on a Fedora machine. Configuration was OK and everything was working fine.

After a reboot every attempt to start a task results in the browser waiting forever for answer (with no effect: no task is started)

I nothing in the log files and openvas-check-setup shows no problems

$ openvas-check-setup
openvas-check-setup 2.3.3
  Test completeness and readiness of OpenVAS-8
  (add '--v6' or '--v7' or '--v9'
   if you want to check for another OpenVAS version)

  Please report us any non-detected problems and
  help us to improve this check routine:
