I can't power on VirtualBox virtual machines on Artix Linux


I installed VirtualBox (including the host modules packages, and I even loaded all of the modules for VirtualBox) on Artix Linux, when I tried to open-up a virtual machine, I got errors saying this

The virtual machine 'TestOS' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1). Result Code: 
NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
IMachine {85632c68-b5bb-4316-a900-5eb28d3413df}

Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver is either not loaded or not set up correctly. Please try    setting it up again by executing


 as root.

 If your system has EFI Secure Boot enabled you may also need to sign the kernel modules (vboxdrv, vboxnetflt, vboxnetadp, vboxpci) before you can load them. Please see your Linux system's documentation for more information.

where: suplibOsInit what: 3 VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED (-1908) - The support driver is not installed. On linux, open returned ENOENT. 

My VirtualBox Packages

  • virtualbox-6.1.16-1
  • virtualbox-host-modules-artix 6.1.16-2
  • virtualbox-guest-iso 6.1.16-1
  • virtualbox-guest-modules-artix 6.1.4-8

When I tried to do the /sbin/vboxconfig command. I got this error message saying this.
/sbin/vboxconfig: command not found
I tried using sudo, and I got this same exact message I just mentioned before.

I'll probably assume that I am using the incorrect VirtualBox modules version, but those are the latest packages on the Artix repository (I tried updating my Artix system too).
