Your failure to build is due to missing packages still. No matter what version you try this must be fixed first. You need the linux-headers that match your running kernel and also build-essential. Previously you ran into an issue that the guest was in a non-stable state and needed repairing, but since you have started over that may not be the same now so install the required packages and try again.
