    Re: getting duplicate sources when I'm trying to install virtual machine.

    Actually I wasn't able to use virtual box, I tried to install it 2 to 3 times but it didn't work, I tried to follow the instructions as in https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

    thanks for replying.

    Ok, back with you

    I need you to remove the virtualbox entries from /var/lib/apt/lists and
    /etc/apt/sources.list.d

    Leave the one in /etc/apt/sources.list

    You can remove those entries by using nautilus as root and navigating to the proper folder. The command for nautilus root is:

    Code:
    gksudo nautilus
    Then ..

    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge virtualbox && sudo apt-get update
    I hope it updated this time, let me know

    Yep

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install dkms build-essential
    Then if you have a vBox start icon, let me know. If you do not have a start icon ..

    Code:
    wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/oracle_vbox.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install virtualbox
    Let me know if that worked.

    Can we use virtual box even after upgrading ubuntu? And can you please tell me how to add guest OS in the virtual box.

    You can create a guest by clicking on "New" when you open vBox. No need to burn a CD/DVD, just download the iso to the host.

    You also need to install the Extension Pack to your host.

    Like I said, click the vBox icon and on the first and screen select "New". The will start the process of creating a guest. After that is created, it will show up on the left side of the vBox screen. You can then mount it by clicking on the "Start" icon.

    You can then install the guest system by either using CD/DVD or iso file from the host.
