As per today Oracle Virtual Box do not yet provide a Saucy build. You will have to wait until its there or compile yourself. – Takkat Oct 22 '13 at 9:00
According to this thread in the virtualbox forums you can try to install the 13.04 (raring) version which may also run in 13.10. – Takkat Oct 22 '13 at 10:54

If you want to download the latest version 4.3.0, just as Babin said in his answer, you can download it from the VirtualBox site. Make sure you download the right file for your architecture (32bit or 64bit). Once downloaded, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, navigate to where the file was downloaded, probably the downloads folder, and run the command(s) below:

sudo dpkg -i <file_name>.deb

If you don't mind verison 4.2.16, then just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo apt-get install virtualbox

-->> Ubuntu 13.04 ("Raring Ringtail") i386 | AMD64 Works Fine with 13.10

Ubuntu 12.10 ("Quantal Quetzal") i386 | AMD64 Doesn't, had some networks configuration problems in my case.

Install the dependency packages:

sudo apt-get install dkms

Add the Oracle PPA and public key:

wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -

Add the VirtualBox repo on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander and Linux Mint 16 Petra:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb saucy contrib" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/virtualbox.list'

Install VirtualBox on Ubuntu and Linux Mint:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install virtualbox-4.3

Welcome to AskUbuntu and thanks for contributing. Your answer seems to be valid, but what is the talk about Mint? – Luís de Sousa Dec 10 '13 at 8:33
