With a little Google-fu and common sense, I found this on the VMWare communities page and it solves my problems.
While I don't use Ubuntu, in Linux Mint (latest release 18.3) I went into privacy settings and told it to remember recently accessed files (Set to "on") and Never forget old files (Set to "On") and now I can add the machine(s) to my Library.

Winter is ending here in Sydney, Australia. Spring, my favourite season, is soon here. Can't wait for the beautiful flowers springing out to life. Although after that, the worst season comes which is summer. Do you know how pesky flies are in Australia??? Not to mention that is the time of the year where the magpies, freakin spiders, slithery snakes, etc. will be out to hunt me ... I mean food.
Still pursuing my OSCP although to be honest, with so little time and so little energy left after a day at work, not to mention my daughter now who demands more of my attention during the weekends, finding time for the OSCP let alone playing a quick round of Street Fighter is becoming a giant task. I'll get there someday. At least I think I will. And in the meantime, I thought I knocked the CEH off. GPEN might be the next one before attempting for the OSCP. We'll see ...

I had the same issue.
Looking at the code in the SR2 zip file, I pinpointed it to the file /data/custom_ramdisk_patch.sh. Looking inside the file, it's some remains of Magisk. I removed that file via the TWRP Terminal (rm /data/custom_ramdisk_patch.sh) and it solved the problem.
Hope this helps!"
And there's the quick fix.

By the way, for you security enthusiasts around the SEA region, one notable conference that might interests you is BlackHat Asia. This year, again it was held at the Marina Bay Sands Expo in Singapore. This is an excellent place for networking and getting to know the people in the industry. I have had the privilege of getting to know, meeting and talking with the Pingu team, Michael Ossmann of HackRF One fame, Jeff Moss with his young kid, Anthony Lai who is HongKong's OWASP chapter lead and the founder of the VXCON, another awesome security conference which I hope I can attend one day, and a whole group of other awesome security people. This is one conference you should seriously consider to attend even if it's for the free business pass.
|A view of events for the day. Usually the briefings and the business hall events will last for two days. Blackhat trainings last for two days as well but they are held prior to the briefings and business hall days.|

The Nexus 6 has a new companion for on-the-go pentesting. Can't wait to see how this baby performs on multi core tasks compared to the 6. Was tempted to flash my OnePlus 3T at first but side loading the OTAs are kinda painful compared to the Nexus phones. Pixel phones? No can do with Google's change in the FS structure. For now.

Pimped my Mr. Robot wannabe MacBook Air (it's an 11-inch model by the way and is something that I am typing on currently). Filled with stickers, nothing too personal save perhaps the dated picture of the Hyrulian princess. The priciest sticker would have to be the Hak5 one. How did I get it?
