You cannot install VirtualBox 6 on i686 because VirtualBox 6.0 discontinued 32-bit host support:

Please also use version 5.2 if you still need support for 32-bit hosts, as this has been discontinued in 6.0. Version 5.2 will remain supported until July 2020.

VirtualBox 5.2 is the last major version to support 32-bit hosts.

You can find VirtualBox 5.2 downloads here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Download_Old_Builds_5_2
