Ubuntu – Upgrade to 17.04 kills virtualbox


I just upgraded to 17.04 and Virtualbox is dead.
I tried

sudo /sbin/vboxconfig

and that failed. Then I went to www.ubuntuupdates.org
and downloaded a fresh copy of 5.1, which is the latest release supported.

I press the Install button on the software installer and it just sits there.

Does anybody else have similar problems? Any suggestions?

Gdebi worked for me

all you need to do is install it and open your .deb files through it

sudo apt-get install gdebi
