Many issues on my Macbook pro (with Fusion pro 11) for running Ubuntu

Hello,

I have a Macbook pro with Mojave system,

I downloaded and purchased Fusion pro 11, i have two issues:

1) When I run ubuntu (16.04/18.04) there is a message:

"Cannot connect the virtual device sata0:1 because no corresponding device is available on the host". What does it means? how can I fix it?

2) When I run ubuntu, during the loading in the terminal I see:

"piix4_smbus 0000:00:07.3: SMBus Host Controller not enabled!"

What can I do to fix it?
