Unable to install all modules. See log /temp/vmware-

I fired up VMWare Player 17 on my Pop_OS! machine today and was prompted to update it. Problem is, the update failed with the below error:



With some google fu I found this github repo which helped me run the below commands and I was able to open VMWare player again:

  • wget (replace 17.0.0 with your current version of VMWare Player
  • tar -xzf workstation-17.0.2.tar.gz  (again replace 17.0.2 with your version)
  • cd vmware-host-modules-workstation-17.0.2/
  • make
  • sudo make install

I did have to reboot my PC after the above steps to start using VMWare Player again.
