That's not enough. 'apt show xtables-addons-common' says:

Note: this package is only useful with a corresponding
xtables-addons-dkms package, which you may produce with
module-assistant:

module-assistant auto-install xtables-addons-source

Either install "xtables-addons-dkms" (which should build missing kernel
modules by itself), or "xtables-addons-source" (and use module-assistant
then).
