The IP address configured for the host-only network is not within the allowed ranges

This seems related more to virualbox than anything, but I’m curious if anyone has any ideas what to do about this?

The IP address configured for the host-only network is not within the
allowed ranges. Please update the address used to be within the allowed
ranges and run the command again.

  Address: 192.168.50.5
  Ranges: 192.168.56.0/21

Valid ranges can be modified in the /etc/vbox/networks.conf file. For
more information including valid format see:

  https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html#network_hostonly
exit status 1

I’ve searched all over, tinkered around in vbox based on the link they provide, but nothing seems to work. This is happening on both of my computers – even after a fresh install.

I am having the exact same issue right now. I don’t know if that has to do with anything, but i am on windows with WSL.

Downgrade to VirtualBox v6.1.26 for now, this happens with the latest v6.1.28…

See this post for a possible workaround.
