There were problems setting up VirtualBox.  To re-start the set-up process, run
  /sbin/vboxconfig
as root.  If your system is using EFI Secure Boot you may need to sign the
kernel modules (vboxdrv, vboxnetflt, vboxnetadp, vboxpci) before you can load
them. Please see your Linux system's documentation for more information.

Step 3: Opening VirtualBox in Ubuntu 20.04

You can search for the virtualbox in the application search and system will display:

Step 4: Installing VirtualBox Extension Pack in VirtualBox running on Ubuntu 20.04

After installing VirtualBox you should also install the VirtualBox 6.1.30 Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack. As after installing this you will get the support for USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 devices, VirtualBox RDP, disk encryption, NVMe and PXE boot for Intel cards on your VirtualBox VM images. So, I am here explaining the steps to install VirtualBox 6.1.30 Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack on VirtualBox running on Ubuntu 20.04.

Download virtualbox extension pack

You can click on the "All supported platforms" link to download the file, in my case my downloaded file was M_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-6.1.30.vbox-extpack.vbox-extpack.

To install the extension pack, select Tools --> Preferences and this will display the preferences windows. In the preferences window select Extensions, then click on the "+" button to browse the the M_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-6.1.30.vbox-extpack.vbox-extpack file.

install entension pack window

Click on the "Install" button to complete the installation process.

Here is the video tutorial that shows you the steps to install VirtualBox on Ubuntu 20.04.

In this tutorial we have explained you the steps to install Oracle VirtualBox in Ubuntu 20.04. After installation of VirtualBox on your system you can create VM of supported operating system and install OS of your choice.
