I'm trying to install Virtualbox on my Ubuntu 16.04.
When I try to open it, it gives me an error that tells me to run
Running this command results in the following output:
vboxdrv.sh: Building VirtualBox kernel modules. This system is not currently set up to build kernel modules (system extensions). Running the following commands should set the system up correctly: apt-get install linux-headers-4.2.0-35-generic (The last command may fail if your system is not fully updated.) apt-get install linux-headers-generic vboxdrv.sh: failed: Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong. This system is not currently set up to build kernel modules (system extensions). Running the following commands should set the system up correctly: apt-get install linux-headers-4.2.0-35-generic (The last command may fail if your system is not fully updated.) apt-get install linux-headers-generic There were problems setting up VirtualBox. To re-start the set-up process, run /sbin/vboxconfig as root.
The suggested steps don't work on my machine. It says that the package is obsolete. The only available header packages are 4.4.0 packages. Running uname -r gives me version 4.2.0 though.
Any ideas how to fix this?
