I can't figure it out. Why is yum needing to update a missing rpm? By the way I also tried yum clean all.

You need to do a lot more reading before you do anything.....

You need to learn about the naming of packages as opposed to the rpm file name....

A quick way to know what packages you have installed would be to do...

rpm -qa | grep vlc This will list out any packages with the name *vlc* (you do know what an * is...).

There never is a package name of "vlc-core.i386" or "0:0.8.6d-3.lvn8". Package names cannot have spaces in them.
