Have you installed kernel-headers?

kernel-headers is indeed present. But the VirtualBox User Manual, mentions
that file only for Ubuntu and Debian. On the other hand, what is
mentioned for openSuSE are kernel-source and kernel-syms, and the latter
of these was missing. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction,
which would have been difficult for me to find from the error message and
the log entry that I was given.
