    It is not even in the repos for focal so I've no idea what it is or what it does, but I do not think you need to install it.

    Re: Unable to upgrade VirtualBox

    I am still uncertain why that volatility package shows up when you search in synaptic for virtualbox, though a search has shown that the volatility package is suggested package of lime-forensics-dkms, so this is all very strange.

    Are you doing the search by Name only or Description and Name?

    A final thought has just come to me.
    As you do seem to have the Oracle repositories showing in your sources.list file but are still having problems I wonder if you ran the two commands to add the security keys for the repos without which you will have problems.

    Try running the following in terminal, making sure you include the final - in each command as shown at the Oracle VBox site at https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads in the Debian based Linux distributions section.
    Code:
    wget -q https://www.virtualbox.org/download/oracle_vbox_2016.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    wget -q https://www.virtualbox.org/download/oracle_vbox.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -

    "OK" is the normal response when the key is added to the keyring.
