Device menu in the VM. "Insert Guest Additions CD".

You didn't need that "sudo apt-get" stuff. The GAs are bundled with VirtualBox on the host.

Sure you have, if you look in the window of the running vm, after starting it. You haven't to search in the management window of vbox.
And btw, you should really read the vbox manual, cause it's all there.

That screenshot is the manager UI. I said to look in the VM.
