3) What I expected to happen:

I expected to be able to run sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-x11

:~$ sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-dkms virtualbox-guest-x11

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
 virtualbox-guest-x11 : Depends: xorg-video-abi-20
                        Depends: xserver-xorg-core (>= 2:
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

The only conclusion that I can draw from this is that the xserver-xorg-
core-hwe-16.04 does not provide xserver-xorg-core.

This is repeatable on Ubuntu 18.04 against the xserver-xorg-core-
hwe-18.04 package.
