You are using Fedora 26, which has been out of support for months. Please update run a system-update immediately or never put this system on the internet again. Outdated software missing updates is a high risk for all your data and for every other computer on the internet.

You need to chose between the version from www.virtualbox.org and the one from rpmfusion, If you try to install both, you will get conflicts

So: either dnf install VirtualBox-5.2.x86_64 or dnf install VirtualBox.x86_64; not both. The packages are:

VirtualBox.i686               5.2.16-1.fc28              rpmfusion-free-updates
VirtualBox.x86_64             5.2.16-1.fc28              rpmfusion-free-updates
VirtualBox-5.1.x86_64         5.1.38_122592_fedora26-1   virtualbox            
VirtualBox-5.2.x86_64         5.2.16_123759_fedora26-1   virtualbox            
VirtualBox-devel.i686         5.2.16-1.fc28              rpmfusion-free-updates
VirtualBox-devel.x86_64       5.2.16-1.fc28              rpmfusion-free-updates
VirtualBox-kmodsrc.noarch     5.2.16-1.fc28              rpmfusion-free-updates
VirtualBox-server.i686        5.2.16-1.fc28              rpmfusion-free-updates
VirtualBox-server.x86_64      5.2.16-1.fc28              rpmfusion-free-updates
VirtualBox-webservice.x86_64  5.2.16-1.fc28              rpmfusion-free-updates
