Reinstall virtualbox debian

Uninstall VirtualBox -> sudo apt-get purge "^virtualbox-.*"

Check carefully what will be removed before you confirm.

Update the software repositories -> sudo apt-get update

Clean up -> sudo apt-get autoremove | sudo apt-get autoclean | sudo apt-get clean

rm -r /etc/init.d/vboxdrv
rm -r /var/lib/update-rc.d/vboxdrv
apt-get install virtualbox virtualbox-dkms virtualbox-guest-utils virtualbox-guest-additions virtualbox-qt


Vagrant commands manage

A VirtualBox machine with the name 'vm_name' already exists. Please use another name or delete the machine with the existing name, and try again.

I listed current running virtual machines from the command line :

vboxmanage list vms

Result :

"vm_name" {8ba467b7-da96-4f68-9bf8-671dd6f0d007}

Then proceeded with the removal of the offending virtual machine :

VBoxManage unregistervm 8ba467b7-da96-4f68-9bf8-671dd6f0d007 --delete

vagrant up --provision

The code has been tested and works
