Virtualbox kernel driver not installed issue

Virtualbox kernel driver not installed issue

I’ve ran twice into this problem. After doing an update on Ubuntu, Virtual Box gave me the message below :

virtual_box_error

It seems that this happens when we update some headers. My problem was that running /sbin/vboxconfig did not solve the issue. Thanks to a post on the Untuntu Forum, here is how to fix it :

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
sudo apt-get remove --purge virtualbox-dkms
sudo apt-get install virtualbox-dkms

Restart the system and the problem should be fixed.
