try to remove virtualbox before (in terminal try:

 sudo apt-get remove --purge virtualbox

if you get an error that virtualbox is not found try this:

 sudo dpkg --get-selections | grep -i virtualbox

then you should get a list of the installed packages with "virtualbox" in their name... remove them and try to install the new virtualbox version.

hope this helps!
