Need a little more information. "Does not exist" meaning you checked how? "Can not uninstall" I assume you get error messages?

Do you mean you want to uninstall VirtualBox, or that you want to get rid of a particular image that you've set up, or what do you mean?

I meant when I click "Uninstall" (picture) nothing happens. I am a dummy in Linux.

Start the shell (terminal)

Run the following command:
sudo apt-get remove virtualbox* --purge

You will have to provide the root password.
