The error message is coming from within the guest, not VirtualBox. And it seems quite clear to me, you don't have enough space in your guest's virtual HD. From a quick look at the log, you've only allocated 8 GB to your guest, that's not enough.

Delete the VM, including all its files, create a new VM and give it at least 20 GB of hard space.

For future reference you should ZIP and attach the log files here, locally.

Well, that was odd. I had chosen 20GB at one point and received the same error message. I tried again and gave it 25GB and it works this time. Thank you.
