System Upgrade?


So earlier today I was having issues with VBox and I have been informed to make a system upgrade.

http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtop...196897#p196897

How shall I do it?

If the warning came from the OS in the virtual machine, use the upgrade tools for the virtualized OS, just as if it were running on a separate physical computer.

If it's an upgrade to virtual box itself, use the upgrade tools for the operating system that virtual box is installed on.

Otherwise, please provide some detail.
