Need help fixing openvas error


I am having trouble getting openvas to work. I am new to kali and linux in general. I have openvas installed and I have run the openvas-check-setup and I have a few warnings, but it says the installation is OK. I am able to access the greenbone web assistant gui and I have setup a task and a target. When I try and run a task I get this error:

Operation: Start Task
Status code: 503
Status message: Service temporarily down


Here is a copy of what I get when I ryun the openvas-check-setu[p command:

root@kali:~# 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:
http://lists.wald.intevation.org/mai...penvas-discuss

Send us the log-file (/tmp/openvas-check-setup.log) to help analyze the problem.

Use the parameter --server to skip checks for client tools
like GSD and OpenVAS-CLI.

Step 1: Checking OpenVAS Scanner ...
OK: OpenVAS Scanner is present in version 5.0.4.
OK: OpenVAS Scanner CA Certificate is present as /var/lib/openvas/CA/cacert.pem.
OK: OpenVAS Scanner server certificate is valid and present as /var/lib/openvas/CA/servercert.pem.

OK: redis-server configuration is OK and redis-server is running.
OK: NVT collection in /var/lib/openvas/plugins contains 47486 NVTs.
WARNING: Signature checking of NVTs is not enabled in OpenVAS Scanner.
SUGGEST: Enable signature checking (see http://www.openvas.org/trusted-nvts.html).
OK: The NVT cache in /var/cache/openvas contains 47486 files for 47486 NVTs.
Step 2: Checking OpenVAS Manager ...
OK: OpenVAS Manager is present in version 6.0.5.
OK: OpenVAS Manager client certificate is valid and present as /var/lib/openvas/CA/clientcert.pem.
OK: OpenVAS Manager client certificate is present as /var/lib/openvas/CA/clientcert.pem.
OK: OpenVAS Manager database found in /var/lib/openvas/mgr/tasks.db.
OK: Access rights for the OpenVAS Manager database are correct.
OK: sqlite3 found, extended checks of the OpenVAS Manager installation enabled.
OK: OpenVAS Manager database is at revision 146.

Step 3: Checking user configuration ...
WARNING: Your password policy is empty.
SUGGEST: Edit the /etc/openvas/pwpolicy.conf file to set a password policy.
Step 4: Checking Greenbone Security Assistant (GSA) ...
OK: Greenbone Security Assistant is present in version 6.0.5.
Step 5: Checking OpenVAS CLI ...
OK: OpenVAS CLI version 1.4.2.
Step 6: Checking Greenbone Security Desktop (GSD) ...
SKIP: Skipping check for Greenbone Security Desktop.
Step 7: Checking if OpenVAS services are up and running ...
OK: netstat found, extended checks of the OpenVAS services enabled.
OK: OpenVAS Scanner is listening on port 9391, which is the default port.
OK: OpenVAS Manager is listening on port 9390, which is the default port.
OK: Greenbone Security Assistant is listening on port 9392, which is the default port.
Step 8: Checking nmap installation ...
WARNING: Your version of nmap is not fully supported: 7.12
SUGGEST: You should install nmap 5.51 if you plan to use the nmap NSE NVTs.
Step 10: Checking presence of optional tools ...
OK: pdflatex found.
OK: PDF generation successful. The PDF report format is likely to work.
OK: ssh-keygen found, LSC credential generation for GNU/Linux targets is likely to work.
OK: rpm found, LSC credential package generation for RPM based targets is likely to work.
OK: alien found, LSC credential package generation for DEB based targets is likely to work.
OK: nsis found, LSC credential package generation for Microsoft Windows targets is likely to work.

It seems like your OpenVAS-8 installation is OK.

If you think it is not OK, please report your observation
and help us to improve this check routine:
http://lists.wald.intevation.org/mai...penvas-discuss
Please attach the log-file (/tmp/openvas-check-setup.log) to help us analyze the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreaciated.

EDIT: This is installed on Kali Linux 2016.1
