I got similar errors last week or so after upgrading to Virtualbox
5.1.28 from 5.1.22 on my Wheezy 64-bit host.  None of my VMs would run
either. Turned out it was due to a mismatched VirtualBox Extension
Pack.  The new one (5.1.28) was downloaded, but not installed.  I was
still running 5.1.22.  I manually installed .28 and all is working.  I
also checked I had the correct matching Guest Additions installed,

NOTE:  I use ONLY the VB versions from the VirtualBox repo.  NOT the
versions from the Debian repos or backports.
