Stiff shifting 2011 Volkswagen Jetta

I have a 2011 VW Jetta with 108k miles. Yesterday, the stick shift was acting super stiff, where as the week before it was just fine. Car seems to be going into gear easily, but movement between the gears is difficult. Is this a bad sign of issues with the gearbox?

Yes, it is.
