Cannot install VirtualBox on Manjaro 18 xfce SOLVED


I cannot successfully install Virtualbox via Add/Remove Software

OS: Manjaro 18.1.0 Juhraya

 Uptime: 56m
 Packages: 1088
 Shell: bash 5.0.9
 Resolution: 4480x1080
 DE: Xfce4
 WM: Xfwm4
 WM Theme: Matcha-sea
 GTK Theme: Matcha-sea [GTK2]

During install I am prompted to select the correcsponsing Kernel and select accordingly.
The install completes successfully and can IMPORT an ova successfully. When I launch virtualbox I get prompted to upgrade but I ignore. When I launch my Windows 7 virtualy I get an error and that I should run sbin/vboxconfig something like that

Should I install install via AUR?

As mentioned in the Wiki, you have to reboot your system or run sudo vboxreload in a terminal window.
