1) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : Virtual box not installed despite installing it minutes earlier via Ubuntu Repository (Message 94)

I was getting the same error after install and after upgrading but a restart of BOINC fixed the problem. Since you rebooted, that should have allowed BOINC to find the VBox instance. Are you using the Oracle repository or the base Ubuntu repositories? I installed from the Oracle repository and it seemed to work for me.

My steps:

wget -q https://www.virtualbox.org/download/oracle_vbox_2016.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-add-repository "deb [arch=amd64] http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian $(lsb_release -cs) contrib"
sudo apt update
sudo apt install virualbox-6.0

After install completes, just restart the boinc client

When selecting team and clicking on the "Join This Team" button, I get a database error and a message saying to try again later. Have been trying for the past 5 hours.
