I can't install virtual-box on UBUNTU. I have an i686 CPU, and UBNUTU 16.04 LTS.

But running this command leads to error.

$ sudo aptitude reinstall virtualbox-dkms

  • Try a never version of VirtualBox, either 5.2.32 or 6.0.10: virtualbox.org – ajgringo619 Sep 2 '19 at 22:36
  • As presented I can't read your actual error messages (you quoted the make log where I feel a {} code-block would be more readable, I looked at changing it but it didn't look right as it looked edited) – guiverc Sep 2 '19 at 22:44

Finally i can solve the problem with

1) remove old virtual box: sudo apt remove virtualbox

2) download virtual box 5 from this link

3) run in terminal sudo dpkg -i virtualbox-5.2_5.2.32-132073~Ubuntu~xenial_i386.deb

Thank you ajgringo619 for helpful comment.
