The installer failed with exit code 1: VBoxExtPackHelperApp.exe: error: Failed to rename the extension pack directory: VERR_ALREADY_EXISTS

rcExit=1.

The work around was to delete the folder:

~~\VirtualBox\ExtensionPacks\Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-_-uninst

After that all went well, uninstall and install the new extension pack of latest version.
