As requested in the IRC chat, I have build a Debian testing based VM and installed openvas9.

Debian testing version appears to have the same issue, in that a scan can be run manually but a scheduled scan fail .

That's expected, we have the exact same package in Debian and in Kali. But we have a newer version of openvas-manager compared to what's in the Ubuntu PPA and it might be a regression as the changelog of the last release mentions quite some changes to the code handling scheduled tasks.

Can you file a bug upstream and post here the URL of the ticket ?
