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



Question:

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 (>= 2:1.10.99.901) E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this would be welcome.


Solution:1

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

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