Ubuntu: VirtualBox running Ubuntu 14.04, after update and reboot can't change size and other problems


After updating my Ubuntu virtualbox, I have encountered several problems:

  1. the copy-paste buffer is not the same from my host machine to the Ubuntu machine.
  2. I can't access shared drives
  3. I can't download virtualbox-guest packages. When I do , I get the following error:

The following package may have unmet dependencies: virtualbox-guest-x11 : Depends: xorg-video-abi-11 Depends: xerver-xorg-core (>= 2: E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this would be welcome.


Update guest additions in the VM. If your guest is running ubuntu:

sudo /media/$user/$vboxversion/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
