Why this issue still not assigned?
Anyway
I tried to manually install manually (because not offered in the automatic update) the three packets (virtualbox-guest-utils, virtualbox-guest-x11, virtualbox-guest-dkms) v.5.1.30 present on the kali repository. And after restarted the problem persist.
After that I installed manually the three packets (virtualbox-guest-utils, virtualbox-guest-x11, virtualbox-guest-dkms) v.5.1.26 present on the kali repository. And after restarted the kali guest work perfectly and the shared folder in correctly mounted in /media/
After upgraded to the 5.1.28 release (the last offered by the automatic update) and restarted, the kali guest again doesn't mount the shared folder in /media/ folder.
Here we are
Do something to correct the bug, please.
Thank you

Could you resolve the problem releasing a correct version of guest additions for the new virtualbox 5.2.0 release?
Thank you

I don't understand what you are requesting. Virtualbox 5.2.0 will come in Kali once it reaches Debian Testing. It just landed in Debian Unstable so you still have a few days to wait. I'm sorry if you have a bug with 5.1.28 but your pet-feature is certainly not critical for Kali. We can't manually handle all the bugs that appear and disappear. That's why we are based on Debian...

Finally the virtualbox-guest- utils v.5.2.0 arrived in the repository and was installed by the last upgrade, but ... but not resolved the problem originating my post, this post.
The Kali virtual machine continue to not see and access the shared folder.
This problem persist from the v.5.1.26, the last release which worked fine with shared folders.
It is very annoying for a good work the impossibility of access shared folders.
Hope the problem will be solved soon
Thank you

Today released in the repository and was installed by the last upgrade the virtualbox-guest- utils v.5.2.2 , but ... but not resolved the problem originating my post, this post.
Where is the problem? Why the Kali guest virtual machine can't see the shared folder?
There is somebody else experiencing the same issue?
Thanks to everybody
