If you are using Debian, upgrading to Stretch, the following apply.

Virtualbox is no longer in Stretch,  if you use Vbox you issues are larger.You 
can put all the Virtualbox packages on "hold" , see if VB survives the 
upgrade to Stretch.

 I was able to install VB from Testing back when Testing was close to Stable. 
I put my VB stuff on hold to survive update. You can "try" the Testing 
packages if you arer fluent in Debian.

 You can get Virtualbox from Oracle.

desktop-base-trinity replaces the Debian desktop-base
