I get no sound whenever I play any music file, but I don't get any error message either. Youtube works properly. Curiously, early in the morning I used Clementine without problem, and now this. Ideas?

I think your sound profile got changed somehow. Execute pavucontrol in a terminal. Then change the profile by going to the configuration tab. Also check the volumes and muteness. If it is not installed already, install it with sudo apt-get install pavucontrol command.
