How to install virtualbox-ext-oracle?

i installed virtulbox but i cant install virtualbox-ext-oracle

vboxmanage --version
yay virtualbox-ext-oracle                     
2 aur/virtualbox-ext-oracle-dev (+0 0.00) 
    Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack for virtualbox dev version
1 aur/virtualbox-ext-oracle 7.0.4-1 (+1365 6.48) 
    Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack
==> Packages to install (eg: 1 2 3, 1-3 or ^4)
==> 1
 -> Could not find all required packages:
	virtualbox=7.0.4 (Wanted by: virtualbox-ext-oracle) 

how to fix?

Due to differences between Manjaro unstable and stable branch - to use AUR - it is almost mandatory to use testing or unstable branch.

To educate yourself on use of AUR please jump to article About Manjaro and AUR

You don’t need the extensions unless you have very specific requirements.

Your issue is because AUR expects Arch package level - you are likely using stable and therefore the version discrepancy.

Switch to unstable

sudo pacman-mirrors -aS unstable && sudo pacman -Syyu

Thank you excellent comment

For people on Stable, I made this, it is not really good, and it can break some day, but it is usefull to let you know if Stable update + AUR update is OK for Virtualbox.

It is badly coded PHP script, but it kinda works, and helps my friends I pushed to Linux years ago lol.
