Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!

There was an error while executing `VBoxManage`, a CLI used by Vagrant.

There was an error while executing VBoxManage, a CLI used by Vagrant
for controlling VirtualBox. The command and stderr is shown below.

    Hi, folks here the solution for MAC user.
    Solution 1:
    I was able to solve it from switching VirtualBox version back from 6.1.10 to 5.2.42.

    Solution 2:
    1. Now pull down the  Apple menu and open System Preferences
    2. Choose “Security & Privacy” and go to the ‘General’ tab within the Security preference panel, then click the lock button and enter the administrator password
    3. At the bottom of the Security General section, look for the message stating “System software from developer ‘Oracle America, Inc’ was blocked from loading” and click the “Allow” button
