Vagrant "Fuse Device Not Found" Error Fix

 You may come across this error while using Vagrant in WSL on Windows. It's very confusing and the Google results are not particularly helpful with fixing this specific error

fuse: device not found, try 'modprobe fuse' first

Cannot mount AppImage, please check your FUSE setup.
You might still be able to extract the contents of this AppImage
if you run it with the --appimage-extract option.
See https://github.com/AppImage/AppImageKit/wiki/FUSE
for more information
open dir error: No such file or directory

The cause of this, at least at the time of writing, is that newer versions of Vagrant (specifically 2.2.19) is broken in (some) cases, and the solution is to use an older Vagrant version (specifically 2.2.6 works for me).
