VirtualBox is not starting. Could be permissions problem.

VirtualBox &
[1] 2631
VirtualBox: Error -10 in SUPR3HardenedMain!
VirtualBox: Effective UID is not root (euid=1000 egid=100 uid=1000 gid=100)

VirtualBox: Tip! It may help to reinstall VirtualBox.

QSettings::value: Empty key passed

What does the following show on your system:

rpm -V virtualbox virtualbox-host-kmp-default virtualbox-qt

Please run the command as user root. The "Tip!" above might actually
help to resurrect the situation for you:

zypper in --force virtualbox virtualbox-host-kmp-default virtualbox-qt

Afterwards you could re-run the "rpm -V ..." command above and compare

If you suspect that some permissions are wrong for some programs, you
can also check for that (again as "root"):

chkstat --system

If this indicates something *is* wrong, you can even set the permissions
to their proper value (also as "root"):

chkstat --system --set

HTH, cheers.
