Have you tried manual inserting https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/6.1.14/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-6.1.14.vbox-extpack
to File > preferences > extensions ?

or installing AUR package (http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/virtualbox-ext-oracle-manjaro)
virtualbox-ext-oracle-manjaro 6.1.14-1 ?

Like antman said, have you followed the wiki’s guide? VirtualBox - Manjaro Linux

I tried manually inserting , the Vbox extension…
Trying the AUR package! It WORKED ! THANK YOU !

Yes, I did follow the Virtual Box Wiki page for installing and integrating with my system, but for the extension- I couldn’t find the right package [as AUR repo was not enabled] therefore, tried it directly from the virtualbox website, Anyways, enabling the AUR repository in my pacman-manager and downloading the extension- WORKED.

For the other method you could also sudo VBoxManage extpack install <Version from Oracle's download page> inside a terminal.
