Can somebody explain how to install VLC? I checked their site, I haven't a clue what to do.

kevin you can use synaptic (system--->adminis--->synaptic)to install whatever you want just search and install

Just go to synaptic (system--->administration--->synaptic) and search for "vlc" and install it. Should work like a charm.

I have never seen that error message before, so my advice will be a little limited(without seeing full output), try
sudo apt-get updateto see if that fixes the problem, and post out put of the commands if it doesn't.
