Since the vagrant version and virtualbox version are too old in official repository, we need to upgrade them for using the newest feature, following are the tips.

Virtualbox

Manually Install

Download URL:

https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

Before installing the newest version, make sure you have uninstalled the old version via `sudo apt-get purge virtualbox*“.

Use dpkg for installing the virtualbox then using sudo apt-get -f install for resolving the dependency issue.

After installed the virtualbox, use sudo /sbin/vboxconfig for building the kernel module.

Use Repository

In Xenial, use following command for adding the repository:

$ sudo vim /etc/apt/sources.list
 deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian xenial contrib
$ wget -q https://www.virtualbox.org/download/oracle_vbox_2016.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install -y virtualbox-5.1

Also use sudo /sbin/vboxconfig for solving the kernel module issue.
