Sytem: I run a Ubuntu Mate 18.04 System in virtualbox, the host system also being Ubuntu Mate 18.04.
Issue: I have enabled "activate mouse clicks with touchpad" in the host (you can't adjust touchpad settings in the guest, nor can you enable or disable it in the guest). It seems completely random whether taping the touchpad does make a click - it works about 50% of the time. If it doesn't work I have to press the touchpad or use the buttons above the touchpad which is annoying because I prefer tapping and I have to tap, realize that it doesn't work and then click a different way.
Question: What may be the cause? What is the solution?

No need to change, it should run with ubuntu too.
All the dostros are the same in some way, though Ubuntu has more apps as it does not follow rules letter by letter.
Just change on mouse setting the tap to click setting on the host.

You wrote: "Just change on mouse setting the tap to click setting on the host. " What exactly do you mean? I have already enabled the "enable mouse clicks with touchpad" option. There is no option for "tap to click" specifically in Ubuntu Mate which I have installed. .
