Installing oracle Virtual Box

hi everyone i am trying to install virtual box but when i tried to install it it says the file can no0t
be found or something like that i want to know how to install a full copy of virtualbox
without it going wrong

Easy way to install vBox is to use our welcome app, software section. Can you post the full error?

Hi fishing elm.

If it has gone wrong on you, do the following first in a terminal:

sudo apt-get remove virtualbox

sudo apt-get purge virtualbox

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get autoremove

Then open the software boutique and choose the "system tools" icon and scroll to the bottom of that section. There, you should find Virtualbox. See below:

If it is not listed, then check the "Set to retrieve the latest software listing" check-box in the bottom left corner of the Boutique and it should reload and then list Virtualbox.

Click it to install. Once you get it installed come back on here and I will give you some instructions in how to use it.

for 16.10 Yakkety Virtualbox is not listed in the Software Boutique at the moment, I had to do the following to add the PPA to install.

Setup key with:

wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -

Setup repository with:

sudo sh -c ‘echo “deb yakkety non-free contrib” >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/’

Install virtualbox with:

sudo apt update && sudo apt install virtualbox-5.1
