Installing OpenVas on Kali gives error about ospd-openvas.service failing

I am installing openvas on kali linux. when starting openvas with gvm-start I get an error Job for ospd-openvas.service failed because the control process exited with error code. What is causing this and how to fix this ?

The cause of this is a permission issue on the openvas logs. The fix is quite easy:

chmod 666 /var/log/gvm/openvas.log

The problem should be fixed.
