My question is similar, but I'm simply trying to use VirtualBox 6.04 (on a Win7 host) and install the Guest Additions package they provide with that build into my Linux Guest. This worked fine until a recent Linux Ubuntu update added kernel headers 4.0.4-143, then VBox Guest Additions failed to start and I could no longer share folders between the Virtual Box host and guest. So I had to roll the kernel headers back to -142 in order to get that to work again, and I've been declining Linux updates ever since. Not an expert in Linux, so I would prefer to wait for an official fix from either Oracle or Canonical instead of test builds or pre-releases. Has anyone used the released version of Virtual Box (6.04 r128413) with the latest Ubuntu 16.04?
