Package: cloud.debian.org
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When starting the debian/buster64 vagrant box with virtualbox, vagrant-vbguest tries to install linux-headers-`uname -r` which is needed for the guest extensions.
This command failes, because the kernel version of the box is 1.19.0-5, but debian mirrors only have the newer 1.19.0-6 kernel version.
I think a new build of the box would fix the issue.

Best regards,
Christian Baumann

Hi Christian
Thanks for your interest about the Debian Vagrant Base boxes and sorry
for the late answer.

We have uploaded a new version of the box, which will fix your dkms problem.

Now I would advise you to use the
https://app.vagrantup.com/debian/boxes/contrib-buster64 which already
has the Virtualbox guest extensions so you don't need to use the
vagrant-vbguest plugin.

There might be a warning that the guest extensions does not match the
Virtualbox version that your host system has, but you can safely ignore
that, it was never a problem in my experience.
