I just started using the VirtualBox, but I don't seem to have any internet on the CentOS when I type
yum update. Is there a solution to my problem? (it could possibly be a problem with misconfigured VirtualBox)

This should return: NETWORKING=yes - If it does not, then change it to yes.
This should look like:
There are a few options that we want to change here, NM_CONTROLLED needs to be NO, ONBOOT needs to be YES, and finally add this code at the bottom:
This will allow you to grab an IP from your DHCP and essentially enable IPV4.
Now the whole file should look like this:
Save and close. Now, lets restart the network service to reload with these settings:

You should now see 'eth0'.
When you're installing CentOS, on the networking page, there is a button at the bottom left that allows you to configure the network settings. Click edit next to eth0 and find the checkbox to set the network to connect automatically.
You have no networking configured. you should have enabled it during install (its not obvious, I missed it too during my first minimal-install). Try:
This will get you started. Then try:
Which will give you a curses based network config program where you can set things permanently.
