No suitable module for running kernel found

Postby sheridanburill » 2. Mar 2020, 05:38

Hello,
I need to use Kubernetes, but can't start minikube due to a Virtualbox issue.
I had an old version of Virtualbox installed a few years ago. After removing the old one, I can't install the latest version. The followings are the output with the installation.
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
$ sudo apt-get install virtualbox
...
Setting up virtualbox (5.1.38-dfsg-0ubuntu1.16.04.3) ...
vboxweb.service is a disabled or a static unit, not starting it.
Job for virtualbox.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl
status virtualbox.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
invoke-rc.d: initscript virtualbox, action "restart" failed.
...

And
"Screenshot"
How to resolve this problem?

Please ask on Ubuntu forums as you're using a community provided package.

Or uninstall the Ubuntu fork and install from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads. The Linux distro repositories fork Virtualbox in ways we can't predict, so we only try to help with official Virtualbox installations.
