I had this exact problem. With SAS University Ed powered off and selected in virtual box select settings - general - basic where you can select a 64 bit OS for SAS University Ed. 'Ubuntu (64 bit)' works for me there are others in drop down select box. I changed 'Ubuntu (32 bit)' to 'Ubuntu (64 bit)', and it worked!
Note: Selecting 'Red Hat (64 bit)' 64 bit OS for SAS University Ed also works and seemed faster and more stable-to-run in interactive mode compared to 'Ubuntu (64 bit)'. This has only been my 'brief' experience with Oracle VM VirtualBox with SAS University Ed.
