[SOLVED] Virtualbox problems

Haven't used virtualbox for years:) System is Debian Stable lxde/openbox combo just installed.
*EDIT - Solved by booting into correct installation . .  yeah.
Upon install:

Setting up virtualbox-6.1 (6.1.14-140239~Debian~buster) ...
addgroup: The group `vboxusers' already exists as a system group. Exiting.
vboxdrv.sh: failed: Look at /var/log/vbox-setup.log to find out what went wrong.

There were problems setting up VirtualBox.  To re-start the set-up process, run
  /sbin/vboxconfig
as root.  If your system is using EFI Secure Boot you may need to sign the
kernel modules (vboxdrv, vboxnetflt, vboxnetadp, vboxpci) before you can load
them. Please see your Linux system's documentation for more information.

My system doesn't use EFI, per mokutil.

modprobe vboxdrv

shows:

modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxdrv not found in directory /lib/modules/5.8.94
/var/log/vbox-setup.log shows:

Re: [SOLVED] Virtualbox problems

It does not look like it installed to me.  I'd start with uninstalling.  Then re-install. I think there's something about restarting the computer somewhere with VB. This is a 64 bit install right?  Not a 32 bit linux host?

Re: [SOLVED] Virtualbox problems

Ack!!!  This is solved.  made a install specifically for this, moved all my stuff over to look the same, then rebooted right back into my main system, which has all sorts of funky stuff going on (different kernels, unstable repos, etc . .)
Jeez louise. 
Booted into the new install and everything is groovy:)
Thanks for the reboot idea!
