I had the same issue...
I'm running fedora 29 and couldn't install VBox (nor via .rpm file or dnf)
Looks like it's not available via rpm but it's available via RpmFusion checkout this link.
Worked for me.

According to link do this:

$ dnf install VirtualBox kernel-devel-$(uname -r) akmod-VirtualBox
$ akmods
$ systemctl restart systemd-modules-load.service
$ dmesg | grep -i vbox

You should see these as result:

[ 2870.556703] vboxdrv: module verification failed: signature and/or required key missing - tainting kernel
[ 2870.565213] vboxdrv: Found 2 processor cores
[ 2870.571315] vboxdrv: fAsync=0 offMin=0x1c2 offMax=0xa5f
[ 2870.671515] vboxdrv: TSC mode is Synchronous, tentative frequency 3000795689 Hz
[ 2870.671519] vboxdrv: Successfully loaded version 5.0.6_ (interface 0x00240000)
[ 2870.671946] VBoxNetFlt: Successfully started.
[ 2870.672227] VBoxNetAdp: Successfully started.

Then add it to user group: For each user that you want run VirtualBox, please do as root:

usermod -a -G vboxusers username ( usermod -a -G vboxusers sergiomb )

Hope it works.
