    Default OpenVAS broke after apt-get dist-upgrade?

    I just installed BT4 r1 today. Out of old habit I did a apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade, and noticed nothing wrong. Not paying attention, I guess.

    However, later I discovered there's no "OpenVAS Server" entry in the OpenVAS menu anymore. I assumed it was a glitch, and tried starting openvasd from the command line, but the file was not found.

    I then decided to backtrace my steps:

    PHP Code:
    root@bt:~# cat /var/log/apt/term.log  |grep -i openvas-server
    Preparing to replace openvas-server 2.0.2-bt0 (using .../openvas-server_2.0.3-bt0_i386.deb) ...
    Unpacking replacement openvas-server ...
    Setting up openvas-server (2.0.3-bt0) ...
    dpkgopenvas-serverdependency problemsbut removing anyway as you request:
    openvas-menu depends on openvas-server (>= 2.0.3).
    Removing openvas-server ...
    root@bt:~# apt-get install openvas-server
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information
    ... Done
    Package openvas
    -server is not availablebut is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missinghas been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    However the following packages replace it
    Package openvas-server has no installation candidate
    @bt:~# apt-get install openvas-menu
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information
    ... Done
    -menu is already the newest version.
    0 upgraded0 newly installed0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    No, I did not mess with the repositiories, only using the defaults.

    EDIT: Seems like I jumped to conclusions. I reinstalled, and noticed the same problem again, even before running apt-get. Then I checked the live cd: The errors in the apt log are also there, so this was broken by default.
