I suspect that this file does not exist on your guest.

777 is not the magic sledgehammer to fix all permission problems.

Your "iso" file is now writable and executable by everything on the system, you should set it 660 before someone comes along and overwrites it with something nasty.

I suspect it means what it says... that your iso file is not actually an iso. What does this print to terminal? file /usr/lib/virtualbox/additions/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso

You don't need to change the permissions unless it tells you "permission denied".

Try downloading it again, maybe it got corrupted.

Perhaps vbox is picky about what kind of ISO it gets (Joliet, Rock Ridge, etc), do you know how this ISO was made?

Perhaps it's from a newer version of vbox than yours?

Have you installed the right version of Virtualbox Guest Additions for your particular platform?
