Thank you!

The current version of virtualbox-hwe in bionic-updates (5.2.34-dfsg-0~ubuntu18.04.1) fails to build with the new linux-hwe-edge kernel based on 5.4 (see bug 1884097). I can confirm that the new version in bionic-proposed (5.2.42-dfsg-0~ubuntu1.18.04.1) can be built successfully.

I did try on bionic, hwe, dkms packages, ext pack, all install correctly!

the armhf failure should be hinted, its NBS package there
