VirtualBox-guest-additions installation error

Hi.

I'm using Fedora 25 KDE. When I tried to install vbox guest additions I got error below.

Code:
Last metadata expiration check: 3:41:26 ago on Tue Apr 18 16:14:36 2017.
Error: package kmod-VirtualBox-4.10.10-200.fc25.x86_64-5.1.18-1.fc25.x86_64 requires VirtualBox-kmod-common >= 5.1.18, but none of the providers can be installed
(try to add '--allowerasing' to command line to replace conflicting packages)
When I add --allowerasing, it want to remove virtualbox.

Code:
Installing:
 VirtualBox-guest-additions            x86_64            5.1.18-1.fc25               rpmfusion-free-updates             1.6 M
Removing:
 VirtualBox                            x86_64            5.1.18-1.fc25               @rpmfusion-free-updates             25 M

There isn't package named VirtualBox-kmod-common

Code:
$ dnf search VirtualBox-kmod-common
Last metadata expiration check: 0:19:43 ago on Tue Apr 18 19:39:56 2017.
Error: No matches found.
But there is kmod-Virtualbox

Code:
$ dnf list | grep VirtualBox

Re: VirtualBox-guest-additions installation error

Have a look at the DNF info for the package - I think it explains what is the issue
Code:
# dnf info VirtualBox-guest-additions.x86_64
Last metadata expiration check: 3:17:53 ago on Tue Apr 18 17:13:05 2017.
Available Packages
Name        : VirtualBox-guest-additions
Arch        : x86_64
Epoch       : 0
Version     : 5.1.18
Release     : 1.fc25
Size        : 1.6 M
Repo        : rpmfusion-free-updates
Summary     : VirtualBox Guest Additions
URL         : http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/VirtualBox
License     : GPLv2 or (GPLv2 and CDDL)
Description : Important note: VirtualBox-guest-additions can't be installed on Host (master)
            : system because contains X11 and OpenGL drives that will mess up with your X11
            : configurations.
            : This subpackage replace Oracle Linux Guest Addition but just for Fedora,
            : therefore should be installed only when we have one Fedora as a guest system.
            : Tools that use kernel modules for supporting integration with the Host,
            : including file sharing, clipboard sharing, X.org X11 video and mouse driver,
            : USB and webcam proxy and Seamless mode.
This indicates this package should not be installed on your VirtualBox host, but only in Fedora 'guests' running under your host.

To prevent installation of the VirtualBox-guest-additions package on the VirtualBox host itself, the package has been set to conflict with a host installation, which is causing the errors you are seeing.

There was a similar named package in my old distro and it was for host. I guess I mix it with that. Thank you.
