I tried almost all versions of official ubuntu, bento/ubuntu-16.04, debian jessie and they used to work and now they don't.
Every image starts to fail. It's either related unable to mount because vboxsf is missing incase of debian jessie or network failure in all latest ubuntu versions. I am so frustrated almost feels like I have to find native windows tools for the tasks that I have to do.
It's either serious quality control issue or no body gives a hoot about vagrant standards or testing when making images.

Bento has been good to me. I’ve forked their repo and build my own boxes now though.
use the [vagrant-vbguest](https://github.com/dotless-de/vagrant-vbguest) plugin to install the guest additions automatically
And don’t blame vagrant for 3rd party box deficiencies
I typically cheat and use a tool like Puphet to build all my servers. It gives you a vagrantfile and puppet standalone configs.
Also try geerlingguy/ubuntu1604 — I maintain this image for a variety of purposes and it should work for most scenarios where ‘official’ 16.04 images have fallen behind (sadly).

I keep a repo of Vagrant related box environments which should work for most scenarios without these issues. I keep them updated using Packer as well. Just thought I would share this here as an option as well. https://github.com/mrlesmithjr/vagrant-box-templates
