Stop scanner and manager. Delete all NVTs (/var/lib/openvas/plugins/*) and the
cache (/var/cache/openvas/*). Run "openvas-nvt-sync". Start the
scanner. Run "openvasmd --rebuild". Did it work now?

What means "stopping"? In which state is the scan.

This is a minor problem in the NVT, this will not cause the scan to stop.
