    you need to reboot your machine, your current kernel is 4.12.6 and your installed kernel is 4.12.8... try again after rebooting – Christopher Díaz Riveros Aug 24 '17 at 5:26

The problem with the modules here is the running kernel.

uname -r shows


and the installed kernel is

4.12.8-2 so given the update, some modules have been erased from the system and it is necessary to reload them, the easiest way is to restart the system.


You may need to reinstall kernel headers package Or you need to add the modules names to /etc/modules-load.d/virtualbox.conf

These are the module names:

vboxdrv vbonetadp vboxnetflt vboxpci
