You can try it from the command-line and tell us what happens. First add the ppa by

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

sudo apt-get update

Now install vlc:

sudo apt-get install vlc
  • thanks... but the solution founded sudo apt-get clean cd /var/lib/apt sudo mv lists lists.old sudo mkdir -p lists/partial sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get update Nov 13, 2014 at 13:55
