VirtualBox: Failed to enumerate host USB devices - tried fixes

Hello,

I am using Q4OS v5.4 (I believe) and installed VirtualBox via sourceforge.net/projects/q4os/files/experimental_apps/ and created a Windows 10 VM. After setup I get the message in VBox:
"Failed to enumerate host USB devices. VirtualBox is not currently allowed to access USB devices. You can change this by adding your user to the 'vboxusers' group."

I added my user to the vboxusers group via "sudo usermod -aG vboxusers $USER", logged out/logged in and even rebooted, and if I run "id $USER" vboxusers shows I am a member of that group but if I run "id" vboxusers does not show up as a valid group (I am assuming here).

Help?

Run in terminal:
$ sudo addgroup --system vboxusers
and the assign the user to the group again.
$ sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers <USRNAME>
