Will be possible change dependency from depends=('virtualbox') to depends=("virtualbox=$pkgver") to force same version? Thanks.

It installed for me just now even though I'm using kernel 4.19

According to the official source for virtualbox, the current version is 6.0.0. I believe this package is incorrectly flagged as out-of-date as of 2019-01-07.

YAY flag it "Out Of Date" like yaourt. I think it's because I use LTS kernel 4.19.

I agree with drankinatty - it's up-to-date. Also, an important note on the use of yaourt: do NOT use yaourt. See for alternatives and reasoning, as yaourt is no longer maintained (see ).

This package is NOT out of date. You must wait to install until after you install Linux-4.20. Then both virtualbox-bin_6.0.0 and these packages install and run fine.

To solve current problem: yaourt -R virtualbox-ext-oracle yaourt -S virtualbox-ext-oracle-5

"As zerophase already stated, the extension can't currently be installed on stable because it already is v6"

Shouldnt ver 6.0.0 be included in virtualbox-ext-oracle-beta for now, until Virtualbox 6.0 enters mainline Arch repository? It's weird that right now the addon package is newer (and incompatible) than the package it should add onto, therefore rendering it useless. And then Virtualbox in mainline is also useless for most users, as its no longer possible to install relevant version of Oracle addons from AUR.

Can we please stop these "me too" comments with the same error message over and over again? As zerophase already stated, the extension can't currently be installed on stable because it already is v6, but the virtualbox v6 package hasn't been moved out of community-testing yet.

And don't even get me started on manjaro.

I also have the same error on Manjaro testing: Progress state: NS_ERROR_FAILURE VBoxManage: error: Failed to install "/usr/share/virtualbox/extensions/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-6.0.0.vbox-extpack" VBoxManage: error: Failed to load the main module ('/usr/lib/virtualbox/ExtensionPacks/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack/linux.amd64/'): VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND - /usr/lib/virtualbox/ExtensionPacks/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack/linux.amd64/ undefined symbol: _ZNK16RTCRestArrayBase9baseCloneEv VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component ExtPackManagerWrap, interface IExtPackManager VBoxManage: error: Context: "RTEXITCODE handleExtPack(HandlerArg*)" at line 1211 of file VBoxManageMisc.cpp
