No suitable module for running kernel found

Postby sheridanburill » 2. Mar 2020, 05:38

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.

How to resolve this problem?

Or uninstall the Ubuntu fork and install from The Linux distro repositories fork Virtualbox in ways we can't predict, so we only try to help with official Virtualbox installations.
