Solution

Shutdown the VM and go to the Settings -> Ports -> Serials Ports -> Port 1 and select “Enable Serial Port” as shown below

VM serial port
Change the path Path/Address according to YOUR machine like: C:/Users/MYNAME/airflow-materials-vm/vagrant/ubuntu-xenial-16.04-cloudimg-console.log

Click on OK, restart the VM and it should work.

If you get an error like FileNotFound, create an empty file ubuntu-xenial-16.04-cloudimg-console.log at the path you specified

Then restart the VM again
