Ticket #1450 (closed defect: worksforme)
Cannot upgrade to VB 6.0

I'm running Ubuntu 8.04, Virtualbox 1.5.6_OSE. I recently checked the Download page, and found out that there is version 6 available, so I downloadedthe package for Ubuntu 8.04 .
According to the manual, to update an installation of Virtualbox, I just need to run the installer. So I use GDebi Package Installer to install the new package. However, when I clicked Install, the installer ran for 2 or 3 seconds and then presented me with "Failed to install package ..." and no other output from the terminal.
Currently my 1.5.6 version is having some problem with clipboard sharing, and as I read on virtualbox support, it might have been fixed in version 6.
Is there anything wrong with the way I updated my installation in Ubuntu? If there is a more correct way, please enlighten me :)
Thanks for your support.
