I have downloaded virtualbox 5.1 from the virtualbox website but I can’t install it. When I open the .deb file with ubuntu software and I click on Install, it doesn’t do nothing. I also tried from the command line, but it says that there’s an error on the dependencies. I also tried by adding the repository and then download the package, but it says that it’s not available.
Help me, please!
Try running this
$ echo deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian xenial contrib | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/virtualbox.list $ wget -q https://www.virtualbox.org/download/oracle_vbox_2016.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add - $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install virtualbox-5.1
After it finishes installing run
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
just to make sure you got the latest version

Verify you downloaded the correct package i386/amd64 from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads
sudo dpkg -i virtualbox*.deb
It throws dependencies error
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo dpkg -i virtualbox*.debagain.
You can easily install from ppa
sudo apt-get install virtualbox
