I am running Scientific Linux 7.4, and I am at my wit's end trying to get the VLC media player to install. I have spent hours searching for the solution online but none of the things that work for other people work for me. I am including the output of an attempted yum install cut to the point where things begin to go wrong:

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: 1:vlc-core- (nux-dextop)
          Available: x264-libs-0.142-4.20140423gite260ea5.el7.nux.x86_64 (nux-dextop)
          Available: x264-libs-0.142-7.20140728gitaf8e768.el7.nux.x86_64 (nux-dextop)
          Available: x264-libs-0.142-11.20141221git6a301b6.el7.nux.x86_64 (nux-dextop)
          Installed: x264-libs-0.148-11.20160614gita5e06b9.el7.x86_64 (@rpmfusion-free-updates)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

It looks like a matter of a package being named wrongly or something. I cannot find the lib package that it is asking for. Also, the suggested fixes don't work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Looking at the lines you have posted, I see that your system has the nux-dextop repository enabled.

The quickest way to resolve your problem would be to ask for help in the Nux! forum.
