VirtualBox is a nice virtualization software. This error indicates unavailability of the ISO file you’re trying to add to VirtualBox.

Adding ISO is a nice way to install OS inside VirtualBox. It looks like it is unable to read the ISO file. Either the ISO is corrupted or your VirtualBox is having trouble accessing the file.

Firstly, launch VirtualBox with administrative privilege by right-clicking the launch shortcut and selecting “Run as administrator”.

If still no solution, update your VirtualBox. Download the latest VirtualBox.

Also, retrieve the ISO file from its official repository. Download Ubuntu Server.

Now you should be able to enjoy your OS with VirtualBox easily.
