testssl.sh: No cipher mapping file found and No TLS data file found (SOLVED)

During the use of the latest versions of testssl.sh, the following messages were displayed at each scan:

ATTENTION: No cipher mapping file found!
Please note from 2.9dev on testssl needs files in "$TESTSSL_INSTALL_DIR/etc/" to function correctly.

Type "yes" to ignore this warning and proceed at your own risk --> yes

ATTENTION: No TLS data file found -- needed for socket based handshakes
Please note from 2.9dev on testssl needs files in "$TESTSSL_INSTALL_DIR/etc/" to function correctly.

Type "yes" to ignore this warning and proceed at your own risk --> yes

They require that you enter ‘yes’, otherwise the scan will not continue.

The essence of these warnings is that testssl.sh can not find the required files.

To solve this problem, it is enough to execute the following commands:

git clone https://github.com/drwetter/testssl.sh
sudo mv testssl.sh/etc/ /usr/bin/
rm -rf testssl.sh/

With these commands, you download and install the files that are required for the normal operation of testssl.sh.

This method has been successfully tested on Kali Linux and BlackArch.
