and I am back,
I tried again and no sound
I found on a post that if I run the command VBoxManage modifyvm ubuntu-vm6-win
i get the available options. So on me I get:

[--audio none|null|oss|alsa|pulse]
[--audioin on|off]
[--audioout on|off]
[--audiocontroller ac97|hda|sb16]
[--audiocodec stac9700|ad1980|stac9221|sb16]

there is no coreauio for me
currently I have:
Audio: enabled (Driver: PulseAudio, Controller: HDA, Codec: STAC9221)
Audio playback: disabled
Audio capture: enabled

with no sound coming out.
again, I have
VBoxManage -version

That is because the options for --audio are based on which host operating system you have. CoreAudio is a macOS feature whereas you have a Linux host so get Alsa, PulseAudio, etc.

As per the previous post from Socratis, I would head over to the Test Builds area and try the 5.2.31 build later than r131151.

My crystal ball is currently broken. If you want assistance you are going to have to give me all of the necessary information.
Please don't ask me to do your homework for you, I have more than enough of my own things to do.
