I upgraded this morning from 19.04 to 19.10 with `do-release-upgrade -d` and the upgrade reported that virtualbox, virtualbox-qt, and virtualbox-dkms encountered problems during the upgrade.

I uninstalled and reinstalled them after rebooting and saw this:

ERROR (dkms apport): kernel package linux-headers-5.0.0-29-generic is not supported
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 5.0.0-29-generic (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/virtualbox/6.0.12/build/make.log for more information.

I think this means the version of virtualbox in 19.10 doesn't want to compile against a 19.04 kernel?

The problem with this, of course, is that everyone who upgrades from 19.04 to 19.10 is going to have a 19.04 kernel installed during the upgrade (and afterward, since one old kernel is saved), so the upgrade will fail for everyone with virtualbox installed. I think this needs to be fixed?
