guest is the virtual machine, which you run inside of VirtualBox (so no, not a second machine).

Do this only if you're running mint natively i.e., not in a virtual box.
The command to do this is -

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get --purge autoremove virtualbox-guest-*
It should remove the 3 packages responsible for this problem. Don't forget to reboot.
Worked for me - many thanks
