Bug#801056: cloud.debian.org: Kernel headers are required to upgrade the guest-additions
The debian/jessie64 vagrant box published on HashiCorp Atlas doesn't have the
linux kernel headers installed. When bringing up a VM, vagrant warns if
the guest additions installed on the guest do not match with the VirtualBox
version on the host. But the VM should work fine.
There is a vagrant-vbguest plugin which automatically updates the guest
additions installed on the guest to match that of the VirtualBox version
on the host. It is widely used and even I have it installed on my system.
Since the kernel headers are not installed, the installation of the guest
additions fails and features like shared folders and etc. no longer work.
