      @Rabbani,

      It seems two repositories EPEL and Nux-Desktop conflicting packages, better try to disable EPEL repository and install the VLC from Nux-Desktop repository, I hope it will install without any errors..

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Mike,

      Thanks for updating us about new EPEL version, yes the old EPEL link is broken, I’ve updated with new working links..
