Quick work around:

  1. Download "Nessus-8.3.1-fc20.x86_64.rpm" from here. MAKE SURE YOU DOWNLOAD THIS EXACT PACKAGE:

  2. Make a new folder and put the RPM file in the new folder

  3. Use python to spin up a quick web server to serve the file from the above folder:

If you have python2.7 installed use this

python -m SimpleHTTPServer

If you have python3 installed use this

python -m http.server
  1. In a web browser navigate to:

You should see a directory listing of the folder you created with a link for the RPM to download it.

  1. Back in the terminal run the yaourt -S nessus command to start the Nessus install, and edit as below the PKGBUILD:

So this line:


Change to this:

  1. Save and exit, continue as normal with the installation. Don't forget to the kill the python web server.

The new file hoster links dies too soon. The problem is that the rpm file can't be downloaded automatically from Teenable, so I must download it manually and then upload it on a file hoster. I'm looking for a free file hoster, with direct/hot link, a file upload around 100MB, no captcha and a file retention superior than 30 days.

I have updated it to 7.1.3

After numerous attempts at making a downloader for their obviously intentionally complicated cookie stuff, I decided to host the file on IPFS.

Right now the file has the ipfs ref QmSxr3yEsgP5JvnpyNtb7dfcvCJgqoxh7sDWV2fjPs8ZkZ if anyone would like to assist in hosting it.

I am working on updating this now that I own it.

Does it autoupdate properly after the initial install or needs to be updated via AUR?. Thanks!

I keep getting this error curl: (3) Illegal characters found in URL ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading -> Could not get the download token, '_retoken' might need an update

Don't know if it's relevant but I use zsh

changing the download file in the pkgbuild to "" solves the issue

It seems that _gettoken() is no longer working. I'm receiving: " -> Could not get the download token, '_retoken' might need an update"

I modified the current files with Larivact's suggestions (except 4.) and did some other minor changes:

Fedora should be more up-to-date than RHEL or CentOS. RHEL 7 doesn't support 32-bit installations by the way.
