I've tried a lot of things to fix this, and I feel like that the best thing to do is to post the error information as it is. I have Linux Mint 20 (Cinnamon) and am trying to use a Windows 10 VM.

Which version of VirtualBox?
I had the 5 series installed and working fine on Linux Mint 19.3. When I tried to install/upgrade to the VirtualBox 6 series it would not install and presented errors.

virtualbox-5.2_5.2.44-139111~Ubuntu~bionic_amd64.deb - installed and working fine with Linux kernel 4.15.0-1**-generic and Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon.

virtualbox-6.1_6.1.14-140239~Ubuntu~bionic_amd64.deb - no-go, errors installing, fail

So if I have Linux Mint 20, which host do I download? I know Mint is a variation of Ubuntu, so do I just download the latest Ubuntu build?

So it's not letting me uninstall VirtualBox for whatever reason...

There were problems setting up VirtualBox. To re-start the set-up process, run
/sbin/vboxconfig

kernel modules (vboxdrv, vboxnetflt, vboxnetadp, vboxpci) before you can load
them. Please see your Linux system's documentation for more information.
