Thank you for your interest in Kali but this bug report is not actionable. Please read https://kali.training/chapter-6/filing-a-good-bug-report/ first. We are a small team and we expect you to provide a much more detailed bug report.
Once you have done the necessary research (possibly with the help of the community on http://forums.kali.org or on IRC #kali-linux on irc.freenode.net), feel free to re-open this bug with more information or to open a new report.
BTW the screen shots show a Windows guest and your report speaks of thing that you are doing in Kali (so in theory on the host) and at the same time you say "While on VirtualBox guest"... Your report doesn't contain any version of the various virtualbox packages that you have installed.
Neither any log of the upgrade that lead to the failure. Maybe you are hit by 0004464 and the upcoming kernel update will help you.
