comment VirtualBox fails to start machine after installing extensions
@betatester07 yes. In fact, upgrading one will force an upgrade on the other, if required.. apt-cache depends virtualbox-ext-pack. You can see it currently (2016-03-18) depends on virtualbox 5.0.

comment How do I enable the “multiverse” repository?
Downvoted because the answer with sudo apt-add-repository multiverse is so much nicer and more modern.

comment VirtualBox fails to start machine after installing extensions
Downvoted because installing VirtualBox outside of the repo is a bad idea. VirtualBox requires kernel drivers. The ones you have now may work, but an upgrade to the kernel may actually break VirtualBox forcing you to have to go search for a new .deb. Also, you won't be getting security upgrades for this which is kind of vital. VirtualBox is better managed by the distro. You're better off installing the extension pack for the one that ships.

comment What is Snappy Ubuntu Core?
This makes no sense. It sounds good, but it's clearly written by someone without a technical understanding. "Snap" isn't a technical term. Dependencies in .deb packages are also taken care of -- and the versions. Just type apt-cache depends <package>. And, a single command? Who cares... Just remove the dash: apt-cache apt-get.. becomes apt cache and apt get...

comment Where are MTP mounted devices located in the filesystem?
This is definitely a valid answer. It's the most right answer on the page. This is where the mount point is. That's the question. No further utilities or programs are required. Good answer.
