The depmod done by the kmod-VirtualBox-KERNELVER RPM may have been interrupted
during its installation. This ia a know problem.

What is the release of it ?

For example with:

  dnf list installed kmod-VirtualBox-$(uname -r)


  rpm -qf /lib/modules/6.4.12-200.fc38.x86_64/extra/VirtualBox/vboxdrv.ko.xz

I am using the same kernel but a slightly newer version of akmod-VirtualBox
from rpmfusion that works:

  rpm -q akmod-VirtualBox; rpm -q --changelog akmod-VirtualBox | head
  * Sat Aug 12 2023 Sérgio Basto <sergio@xxxxxxxxxx> - 7.0.10-2
  - Add fix for kernel-6.4.10

  * Wed Jul 19 2023 Sérgio Basto <sergio@xxxxxxxxxx> - 7.0.10-1
  - Update to 7.0.10
