Works fine for me. Are you on an Admin account?

FWIW, when you launch the Terminal, do you see…
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Last login: Wed Feb 24 03:50:47 on console
iMac:~ <your user name>$

If not, there is someone wrong with your OSX 10.11.4 install.

Yes I do see:

Last login: Wed Feb 24 09:28:52 on ttys000
Carltons-MBP:~ cartyellis$

There was an account on this laptop with that username. I now remember it - and I entered the password I expected and that is when I got the message about not being in the sudoers file.

Guess that is where I am stumped.

Well, for that user name to show in the terminal you actually have to be logged in to that account. At this point you need to head over to the Apple Developer Forums. The issue has nothing to do with VirtualBox.

Just to complete the documentation, changed user to Admin and uninstall worked just fine.
