It "just works" for me.

How did you install it?  I installed it with dnf using the VirtualBox rpm and didn't get any error messages.

I just checked and I don't have any "elflibs" rpms on this computer, either.  I do have elfutils-libelf, though, which may be something similar or may be entirely different.

Again, though, VirtualBox works fine here.   VirtualBox-6.1-6.1.12_139181_el8-1.x86_64 according to the output from the rpm -q command.

So all of this makes me wonder if the problem is the way that you installed it or what you did to satisfy the mystery dependency(?) on elflibs, whatever that actually may be.

Can we uninstall 2020 and install it again? This one has a virus.
