I tried to run vagrant up command in linux terminal then facing these following errors :

The provider 'virtualbox' that was requested to back the machine
'default' is reporting that it isn't usable on this system. The
reason is shown below:

VirtualBox is complaining that the kernel module is not loaded. Please
run `VBoxManage --version` or open the VirtualBox GUI to see the error
message which should contain instructions on how to fix this error.

I also run VBoxManage --version but it still getting these following errors:

WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
         available for the current kernel (5.0.0-32-generic) or it failed to
         load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by

           sudo /sbin/vboxconfig

         You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.

I found some question on this site but still not getting any solutions.

The main problem was in the virtual box.

I run sudo apt-get purge virtualbox-\* this command this to remove all the vb files then upgraded to latest version by downloaded .deb link files.
