I had the same problem but upgrading to the latest version of virtualbox-ext-oracle solved the problem.

Hello seblu, I know there's already an out-of-date flag, while things are somewhat different this time. With virtualbox 5.1.10, virtual machines refuse to start with older extension packs:

$ vboxmanage startvm win7
Waiting for VM "win7" to power on...
VBoxManage: error: The device helper structure version has changed.
VBoxManage: error: If you have upgraded VirtualBox recently, please make sure you have terminated all VMs and upgraded any extension packs. If this error persists, try re-installing VirtualBox. (VERR_PDM_DEVHLPR3_VERSION_MISMATCH)
VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component ConsoleWrap, interface IConsole

virtualbox has just entered [community] 90 minutes ago, so I just more people will be affected by this issue.

For others come here, perlsite's comment below (on 2016-07-01 18:32) is helpful. Just change pkgver=5.1.10 and md5sum to ac90d8356746754eadc3f28ef77174f0

I'm getting these errors when updating this package:
error: 'jre8-openjdk-headless-8.u112-1': description file is missing
error: 'jre8-openjdk-headless-8.u112-1': file list is missing
Yet the jre8-openjdk-headless-8 directory does exist in /var/lib/pacman/local and isn't empty, and pacman -Qi shows it is version .u112-1. Happens using pacaur and yaourt, pacaur gives a little more info in the error. What can I do to remedy it?
EDIT: my mistake, had to set default java enviro to 8 today after -Syyu, all is well.

rdesktop is woefully out of date. I would add remmina as an optional dependency and perhaps drop rdesktop altogether. There's also gnome-rdp, although I haven't tried it and don't know what state it's in.

I found the difference. Apparently having TAR_OPTIONS="--xattrs" in the environment causes tar to use a format different from the default.

Well, as workaround just use the "Download snapshot", extract in /tmp/vbep
open the PKGBUILD and change to "pkgver=5.0.24" and "md5sums=('f576d8521e6315b507ae7daab495c1e6')" respectively.

Keep only PKGBUILD and virtualbox-ext-oracle.install files. Delete all the other inside /tmp/vbep


and then:

sudo pacman -U virtualbox-ext-oracle-5.0.24-1-any.pkg.tar

Why this package in your repository ($repo/$arch) is outdated?

$ pacman -Sl seblu | grep virtualbox
seblu virtualbox-ext-oracle 5.0.20-1
