I apologize, I don't speak Spanish. I ran across this exact issue 2 weeks ago. I found that the ONLY solution is to wipe the OS, and reinstall the OS and MVM. Once I did the rebuild API service was working as intended.
He was speaking Portugese, not Spanish. FWIW, Google translated his message thus:
I have just come across to me with a problem I had not met before.
When installing from scratch the MVM 7.5 when I log me via browser , I am faced with the message "The connection to the McAfee Vulnerability Manager API Service could not be made . Contact your administrator . "
When checking the FCM console, the Scan Engine is stopped and can not start it .
Has anyone encountered this problem before?
I'm counting on you!
The main thing I got from that is that he had just installed from scratch, making the recommended action redundant. That said, a complete OS and application is a shotgun/sledgehammer approach, and not practical except as a last resort in the Real World.

Unlike Lucas, all of my services are running .
I tried the following KB, to no avail:
