I think I see the problem... they are updating to 3.1.6:
http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
 http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Changelog
http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads
is still showing 3.1.4 and it appears the repos may be caught between
the change:
<http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/pool/non-free/v/virtualbox-3.1/>

You can download the version directly & install while waiting for Oracle
to get their repos together. Or give it a day & see if they get updated
properly.
