I got some cloud VMs and want to contribute to the project, but the native applications always fail, and I couldn't fix it. I am wondering how can I setup VirtualBox with LHC. I did simply `sudo apt install virtualbox -y`, is that all?

Some of your computers have only 7.77 GB RAM, others less than 1 GB.
To run ATLAS 16 GB should be the minimum.
ATLAS native requires a local CVMFS client and apptainer (former known as singularity) to be installed.
This is from your logfiles:
[2022-04-01 22:45:25] Checking for CVMFS [2022-04-01 22:45:25] No cvmfs_config command found, will try listing directly [2022-04-01 22:45:25] ls: cannot access '/cvmfs/atlas.cern.ch/repo/sw': No such file or directory [2022-04-01 22:45:25] Failed to list /cvmfs/atlas.cern.ch/repo/sw [2022-04-01 22:45:25] ** It looks like CVMFS is not installed on this host.
CVMFS needs to be installed and configured correctly.

Answering the subject line, my old notes for CentOS7/8 (Minimal install) say:
yum install gcc make elfutils-libelf-devel kernel-devel kernel-headers setools-libs libsemanage-python libseccomp
Install the downloaded VirtualBox RPM:
yum localinstall VBox-version.RPM
user running BOINCmust be in VBox group:
usermod --append --groups vboxusers boinc
Rebuild the kernel modules:
Start VBox services:
service vboxautostart-service start service vboxdrv restart
VBoxManage extpack install /tmp/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-version.vbox-extpack
VBoxManage list extpacks
VBoxManage list vms VBoxManage showvminfo 1e6cf289-3176-476f-b80c-6fa3fbe42922 VBoxManage unregistervm 1e6cf289-3176-476f-b80c-6fa3fbe42922 --delete
Distro-specific and SysV-to-systemd translation left as an exercise for the reader.
Note that I've not tested this in a couple of years as I don't have any suitable machine at the moment. Any problems see Yeti's Checklist
