I am trying to update Oracle VM VirtualBox from version 4.2.22 to 4.3.4.3.8.

I am using ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS.

I am getting this attached "Breaks existing package' error, opening downloaded install file
with Ubuntu Software Center.

It is important that I don't lose my existing installed virtual machines.

How should I do the upgrade? How should I do installing the extension pack?

The first half worked perfectly: removing from the command prompt, as indicated
in the linked page.

Then I had to download and install it the usual way by double-clicking on the *.deb
file and installing from Ubuntu Software Center.

i am using Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS, not 13 still worked, eventually.
