CentOS 7.5 Guest Additions not installing

Description

I had a CentOS 7.4 VM and then I updated it to the latest kernel so that it is now running CentOS 7.5 and my screen won't resize and I can't copy/paste between my Windows Host and my VM. Originally I was on VirtualBox 5.1.32 and I tried reinstalling the guest additions, this didn't work and I couldn't work out what was causing the issue from the VBoxAdd-install.log.

I saw a fix in the latest version of VirtualBox but this didn't fix the issue even after installing the latest guest additions.

Rough Steps to Reproduce:

  • Upgrade CentOS 7.4 VM to CentOS 7.5
  • Install latest guest additions

To clarify I meant the latest version of VirtualBox 5.1, i.e. 5.1.38 NOT 5.2.12
