LMDE VLC package Broken after Upgrade.
So, I built LMDE from the ISO I downloaded from the website. Then I upgraded to the latest service pack. Unfortunately when I did that Upgrade Manager left a couple of repositories pointing to the Debian mirror rather than the Mint mirrors.
Turns out that Mint now provides some of the components required for VLC in it’s own repositories. The debian repositories don’t have them. Here’s what Upgrade-Manager put (or left) in /etc/sources.list
Here’s what should have been there:
As soon as I got the repositories right, VLC installed without any issues.
