Problem installing Wine/Virtual Box

I have recently changed over to Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon from Windows 10. I was trying to install Wine or Virtual Box but the Software Manager is throwing up messages like
"Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/po...-dkms_6.1.10-dfsg-1~ubuntu1.20.04.1_amd64.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 2001:67c:1360:8001::23 80]

Any solution or suggestions?
Thanks

Hmm... Try downloading the .deb from here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

The links are at the top of the page in the bullet list. Those are the actual links, it's just poor web design. You needn't bother with the rest of the page. You can then install it with apt or gdebi or whatever.

You are trying to install 6.1.10 while the current one in the repositories is 6.1.16, try updating your repositories first since and then install the package again.
Code:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install virtualbox-dkms
