You have now solved your problem but if you have Debian-Multimedia in
your sources.list it may have been the cause of your problem. My testing
upgrade today wanted to remove vlc and vlc-nox. Commenting out the D-M
archive and removing ffmpeg (which was from there) prevented that.
Some library incompatibility, I expect. I recollect on Lenny it was not
possible to have the Debian vlc and D-M ffmpeg together so it's not
unknown for the two archives not to mix.
That was very helpful - thanks for that. I do have D-M in my sources
list, so this may have been the cause of the difficulties I experienced.
I'll bear that in mind for another install I am planning.
