VBoxManage is unable to start vm code NS_ERROR_FAILURE ubuntu 16.04

I recently upgraded to virtualbox 5.2.4 and vagrant 2.0.1 because of this issue. Since then, I haven't been able to run any of my vagrant boxes (some ubuntu, some centos). I get the following error when running vagrant up:

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

Command: ["startvm", "ef47d1fc-4ed1-42cb-b564-09bc2bb43296", "--type", "headless"]

Stderr: VBoxManage: error: The virtual machine 'ishbook-centos' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1) VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component MachineWrap, interface IMachine

When I just run vboxmanage without --type headless, I get a popup saying to run /sbin/vboxconfig.

RTR3InitEx failed with rc=-1912 (rc=-1912)

The VirtualBox kernel modules do not match this version of VirtualBox. The installation of VirtualBox was apparently not successful. Executing

'/sbin/vboxconfig'

may correct this. Make sure that you do not mix the OSE version and the PUEL version of VirtualBox.

where: supR3HardenedMainInitRuntime what: 4 VERR_VM_DRIVER_VERSION_MISMATCH (-1912) - The installed support driver doesn't match the version of the user.

I've tried reinstalling virtualbox and the extension pack multiple times and reinstalling linux-headers and dkms as seen in answers to questions similar to this one, but nothing has worked. Any ideas?

Edit: Just tried it out on 5.1, but it's the same error, 5.0 just hangs my computer
