I've been trying to get armitage working for a while now and I cant seem to find the exact answer to the problem I'm having so here goes.

When I open armitage it fails to connect to the database and says password auth. failed for user "msf". I have enabled the postgresql service I cannot start the metasploit service as it says service not found metasploit framework is installed and working, but after a restart it goes to password auth. failed for user "msf"

Edit: I'd try reinstalling postgres but when i try to apt install --reinstall postgresql it tries to uninstall kali-linux-full as well.

I have ran msfdb init.

I have ran msfupdate.

I have reinstalled metasploit framework from their website.

I have no clue what is wrong.
