There was an error while executing `VBoxManage`, a CLI used by Vagrant for controlling VirtualBox

I was starting Homestead, a Vagrant Virtual Machine and I get this error

$ vagrant up
Bringing machine 'default' up with 'virtualbox' provider...
==> default: Checking if box 'laravel/homestead' is up to date...
==> default: Clearing any previously set forwarded ports...
There was an error while executing `VBoxManage`, a CLI used by Vagrant
for controlling VirtualBox. The command and stderr is shown below.

Command: ["modifyvm", "7d25b4de-cea4-4aac-ab3c-051f17384211", "--natpf1", "delete", "ssh", "--natpf1", "delete", "tcp33060", "--natpf1", "delete", "tcp44300", "--natpf1", "delete", "tcp54320", "--natpf1", "delete", "tcp8000"]

Stderr: VBoxManage.exe: error: Code E_FAIL (0x80004005) - Unspecified error (extended info not available)
VBoxManage.exe: error: Context: "LockMachine(a->session, LockType_Write)" at line 493 of file VBoxManageModifyVM.cpp

The solution: stop the VirtualBox Machine with the GUI and the restart the machine with

$ vagrant up
