  • Linux Lite: 3.8 32bit
used Light in Virtual BOX. After latest update it fails after first rebot on "Started Update UTMP about System Runlevel Changes" line
Found info on web about the issue ...
Many mentioned that the problem is related to Video driver problem after update (different distros mentioned).
I followed this:
Just had this problem. CWO's solution helped, except because I'm running it as a VM the alt key combo didn't work; I booted into advanced mode, then recovery.
Ran apt-get -f install let it do it's thing.

Working distro!
Unfortunately, not works for me after running      apt-get -f install     I get : 3 packages not needed and could be removed by autoremove... When try to autoremove it fails. But files mentioned for autoremove are not related to Video as mentioned by many on web. So I am lost... Don't want to switch to another distro (basically it may happen with any others as I saw).
Just to be sure... I installed fresh VM from lates Light ISO available and after first update the same story it fails...
Hope somebody here can help.

There is another thread on the subject in these forums.
You have to put the virtualbox modules updates on hold with apt-mark
Doing system update and udating these currently breaks a Virtual Box installation.

Good luck!
