Guest additions stopped working in VirtualBox 6.1

I have the same problem as here. Nothing from answers helped. I tried http://youtu.be/5_fluJuJc6E?t=58 but Remove Attachment is grayed out. I have VirtualBox 6.1 and Lubuntu 18.04.

FYI: Lubuntu 18.04 LTS is no longer supported; refer https://lubuntu.me/bionic-eol/ or https://fridge.ubuntu.com/2020/08/14/ubuntu-18-04-5-lts-released/ where you'll note only Ubuntu Server, Ubuntu Desktop & Ubuntu Cloud come with 5 years of support; *flavors* only had shorter lives. I'd suggest using `ubuntu-support-status` to assess the security status of your actual install. Your question is still on-topic here, but consider how much security matters to you and the results of prior command. You're now using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with LXDE (*not Lubuntu*).

@guiverc Thank you. Actually, this is `Lubuntu`. You probably remembered another question, where I installed Ubuntu with LXDE to my coworker. This is another case. Lubuntu 18.04 in virtual machine where I run mainly apache. Do you recommend me some upgrade? I don't know the shortest command sequence for upgrade to newer version. :-) so I'm not upgrading so far.

I'm not sure I recommended anyone installing Lubuntu 18.04 LTS unless the box was *i386* or 32-bit as it was the end of the road (technically 18.10 & 19.04 were supported for *i386* but ended life before 18.04 LTS did/does). Lubuntu 18.04 LTS being the end of the road for upgrades; other *flavors* usually made more sense, unless the user was capable enough to fix their own issues. (*I don't usually remember many users, as I see 30-80 support questions per day; unless it's the same identical question asked on multiple sites; those stand out*)

This answer helped.

sudo mount -o loop /tmp/VBoxGuestAdditions_6.1.26.iso /mnt

and

sudo sh /mnt/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
