I have Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.1.38 installed for long time:
$ apt-cache policy virtualbox-5.1 virtualbox-5.1: Installed: 5.1.38-122592~Ubuntu~xenial Candidate: 5.1.38-122592~Ubuntu~xenial Version table: *** 5.1.38-122592~Ubuntu~xenial 500 500 http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian xenial/contrib amd64 Packages 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
I have not ran kernel updates, or something DKMS-related today.
