I can't program FPGA with linux command line mode

i installed ubuntu 18.04+virtualbox on my windows 10 laptop, and then installed Quartus prime pro 20.1 linux version.

with above environment, I can download the FPGA successfully via the quartus programmer tools. but when i tried below instruction in linux command line mode, 

quartus_pgm -c 1 -m jtag -o "p;$SOCEDS_DEST_ROOT/examples/hardware/a10_soc_devkit_ghrd/output_files/ghrd_10as066n2.sof"

it failed and error information is as below:

Error (20910): The host CPU is not supported in this version of the Intel Quartus Prime software. Intel requires that you upgrade to a more recent processor that supports SSE 4.2 and the POPCNT instruction

so, with the same configuration and the same target board, why i can't use the command line mode?

please help me to solve it. thanks in advance.

after unchecking the items, the quartus_pgm can download the sof to FPGA without error.
