I have moved from Debian 10 to 11. I could copy from the guest and paste in the host before the change, but now this doesn't work.

I had the same problem with Linux Mint 20.2. After updates of the kernel and update to VB 6.1.26_Ubuntu r145957 the clipboard worked again in both directions.

Guest Additions (and prerequisites) are required for shared clipboard. Also, only X clipboard is compatible with Virtualbox Shared Clipboard, Wayland clipboard is not compatible yet.
See https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch04.html and https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch02. ... nux-prereq
