Thanks for the report.

The issue is in the gvm-check-setup: we recently changed the redis configuration (/etc/redis/redis-openvas.conf) to not save the redis DB on disk, as upstream suggests.
So it's ok if you don't have the /var/lib/redis/openvas-dump.rdb

I removed this check in the gvm version 11.0.2_kali3. It will be available soon in Kali.

So the check work break is ok?Can't I delete this check in the script to continue check the next step?

Yes you can remove this Redis DB check to continue to next step.

Instead of using the openvas-dump.tdb to check if the redis server is accessible you could do the following instead and check if it is returning "PONG":

redis-cli -s /var/run/redis-openvas/redis-server.sock ping
