Download the 64 bit Linux Virtualbox package from official website

https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

The latest version at the time of writing this is 5.1.16

Now install the necessary packages

sudo eopkg it -c system.devel
sudo eopkg it linux-lts-headers

Install the downloaded package as follows

sudo sh ~/Downloads/VirtualBox-5.1.16-113841-Linux_amd64.run
