I even reinstalled VB, but no effect..

When you have only the sixtrack application selected in your preferences and there is no sixtrack work available (as for now),
you get this irrelevant message.
Select e.g. also Theory tasks.

After upgrading VirtualBox I reboot the Linux PC and VirtualBox is acknowledged.

I have the same. Only sixtrack app selected, which is a native win64 app. No need for vbox. So, there is clearly an error here. Boinc asks for "new tasks available"? LHC has the user, so it should check the prefs and check whether I have something selected for vbox or not. If not, no need to send this annoying message...

Just a waste of time and cpu that could be useful somewhere else...

Please fix this!

The project is configured to require virtualbox, since the project does require it for most of the applications it would seem wise to enable the option on the project.

just install virtualbox then it goes away.
