This error has previously been reported in post: VBoxManage: error: Failed to create the host-only adapter and it keeps reoccurring for new versions of Windows/vagrant/OracleVB as described below. If anyone has identified a solution to this problem for the setup that is described below, please share here:
I installed Oracle VB and then Vagrant (both fresh installs) and then ran
vagrant up as usuas in one of my workspaces. After vagrant had finished downloading the virtual box, it gave the following error output when attempting to start the VM:
C:\Users\AHL\workspace>vagrant up Bringing machine 'default' up with 'virtualbox' provider... ==> default: Box 'bento/ubuntu-14.04' could not be found. Attempting to find and install... default: Box Provider: virtualbox default: Box Version: >= 0 ==> default: Loading metadata for box 'bento/ubuntu-14.04' default: URL: https://atlas.hashicorp.com/bento/ubuntu-14.04 ==> default: Adding box 'bento/ubuntu-14.04' (v2.2.9) for provider: virtualbox default: Downloading: https://atlas.hashicorp.com/bento/boxes/ubuntu-14.04/versions/2.2.9/providers/virtualbox.box default: Progress: 100% (Rate: 74436/s, Estimated time remaining: --:--:--) ==> default: Successfully added box 'bento/ubuntu-14.04' (v2.2.9) for 'virtualbox'! ==> default: Importing base box 'bento/ubuntu-14.04'... ==> default: Matching MAC address for NAT networking... ==> default: Checking if box 'bento/ubuntu-14.04' is up to date... ==> default: Setting the name of the VM: workspace_default_1473571560144_68182 ==> default: Clearing any previously set network interfaces...

Vagrant.configure(2) do |config| config.vm.box = "bento/ubuntu-14.04" config.vm.network "private_network", ip: "192.168.33.10" end
The solution to this problem appears to be the same as reported in the related post:
Although the VM in the Oracle VB GUI appears as not running, you must manually start it through Oracle VB GUI (this should work and allow you to login to the box) and then manually power it off again (also through Oracle VB GUI). Then, run
vagrant up again and it should work.
If you're having issues with this setup then please add comments to this post.
UPDATE 2020.10: STEPS BELOW DO NOT WORK ANYMORE.
If you installed VirtualBox without Network support or if you don't has Network support installed.
For me, it worked. Good luck there!
