I rarely use VB, but today I went to import a OVA file and could not. My current version is 5.2. I click check for updates, there are none available. I look in Software Boutique, it does not show me having VirtualBox, but it shows it available to install. Software Boutique does not show what version is available, but I assume 6.1. So what is the best way forward? I am thinking of:
sudo apt remove virtualbox-5.2 sudo apt install virtualbox
or should I:
sudo apt remove virtualbox-5.2
then install using Software Boutique?
Just an update, neither method above works. sudo apt install virtualbox instals a different version of 5.2, I thinki it went from 5.2.31 to 5.2.32 even though 5.31 indicated I had the latest version. Software Boutique installed 5.2.32 as well. To get 6.1 installed I did the following:
sudo apt remove virtualbox-5.2 wget https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/6.1.0/virtualbox-6.1_6.1.0-135406~Ubuntu~bionic_amd64.deb sudo dpkg -i ./virtualbox-6.1_6.1.0-135406~Ubuntu~bionic_amd64.deb
