When researching I came across a article which stated problem starting Specific Ubuntu Version on VirtualBox and in the solution some one mentioned to increase the Memory so I thought this could be causing the issue during the installation too I increasing the size of memory to 2 GB from 1 GB when creating the server and the installation was completed successfully.
