    You have to setup a shared folder and mount it in VB. Make a folder then go to VBOX's Settings > Shared folders, you can set it to automount and grant full access to VBox guest.

    To use usb device in vbox you have to install the guest additions

    and

    add yourself to the vboxusers group

    Code:
    sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers $USER
    Then logout and login again.

    Have you updated yet, so the repos can be found?
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    as well,
    Could you walk through the steps you ran when trying to enable the repos?
