In Mac OS X,
In Ubuntu installed in Virtualbox in Mac OS X?
both alt-V and command-V don't perform page-up.
I am running emacs in a terminal emulator.
You can ask emacs this question directly. Use C-h f scroll-up-command RET to open the help for this function; it'll say also what key or keys it's bound to. It's probably C-v and <next> (useful should you have a keyboard with a 'next' key).

This is completely an issue within emacs running inside Gnome Terminal.
The solution is to uncheck "enable the menu access keys" in gnome terminal's shortcut keys' settings.
