So, after the recent kernel update to kernel 5.8, my Virtualbox installation broke. It couldn’t run any VMs and gave me an error message when I tried. When that happened, I didn’t know about this site (I was, and still am, a GNU/Linux novice), and so didn’t ask a question about this here. I didn’t know what to do even after researching on the internet, so I went and reversed the update (I currently use 5.7.17-generic). So, my question is:
How can I keep Virtualbox working after a kernel update? Or, if that is not possible, what steps can I take after a kernel update to get it to work again?
Note: When answering, please keep in mind that I have the version of Virtualbox from the Ubuntu 20.04 repos installed and that I would like to be able to keep Virtualbox working after a kernel update without a reinstall (but I am willing to if I must).
If you need anything, just ask.
Thanking you in advance.
