Hi folks, as said, "--force" is not implemented, and the call exits with

Progress state: NS_ERROR_FAILURE
VBoxManage: error: Failed to uninstall "Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack"
VBoxManage: error: The installer failed with exit code 2: VBoxExtPackHelperApp: error: Unknown option: '--forced'
VBoxManage: error: rcExit=2
VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component ExtPackManagerWrap, interface IExtPackManager
VBoxManage: error: Context: "RTEXITCODE handleExtPack(HandlerArg*)" at line 1199 of file VBoxManageMisc.cpp

looking at 

the --forced is passed (while the documentation says --force)

./src/VBox/Main/src-helper-apps/VBoxExtPackHelperApp.cpp:134 is not accepting that parameter.
