I did a partial upgrade early this morning and followed all the steps trustingly because it usually doesn't cause problems after until now.

VLC was unexpectedly removed without my knowing. I tried to re-install it via terminal but it showed this:

The following packages have unmet dependencies: vlc : Depends: vlc-nox (= 2.0.2+git20120711+r286-0~r39~precise1) but it is not going to be installed Depends: libvlccore5 (>= 2.0.0) but it is not going to be installed Recommends: vlc-plugin-notify (= 2.0.2+git20120711+r286-0~r39~precise1) but it is not going to be installed Recommends: vlc-plugin-pulse (= 2.0.2+git20120711+r286-0~r39~precise1) but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I tried doing it through the Software Center but it also gave me a similar message. How can I fix this and install VLC again?

Thank you.

I'm using ThinkPad R61i 64-bit 12.04.

If you're using ppa:videolan/stable-daily to install vlc, please consider that 64bit builds were still pending until 9 minutes before since the instant I'm writing.

To add repo, if you didn't add it before:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:videolan/stable-daily

Then:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
