Bug Description

I have the problem in virtual machines that the favored virtualbox packages for the guest does not install correct.

- make a new Linux VM
- install Xubuntu (i think, we have the same problem in all the other Ubuntu distros)
- reboot --> get a real small window (800x640?)
- install package Synaptic
- open Synpatic
- go through the options
- - Ubuntu Software all ticked (except sources)
-- other software all ticked (except sources, again)
-- Updates all ticked
-- additional propietary drivers
--> activate Virtualbox-guest
--> accept/do now
--> installation starts (blue bar) but hangs forever

This is cause of NOT reloading the software sources/packages so i got an error that the source is not reachable (or something like that).
After closing the Software-properties window and reloading the packages all works flawless.
