Ubuntu – Cannot install virtualbox extension pack


The file will be downloaded into /usr/share/virtualbox-ext-pack
Hash mismatch Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-5.0.24.vbox-extpack
dpkg: error processing package virtualbox-ext-pack (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Is there a workaround for this?
