Anyone know why I cannot install VLC on Fedora 26? The RPM free/non-free repos have been enabled. Stopped working after update to Fedora 26.

Look at parameters inside /etc/yum.repos.d/postinstallerf-updates.repo? Or reinstall it. After do sudo dnf clean all

After to read strange answers... man!

  1. PostInstallerF isn't available for F26 yet...

The solution is disable the repository... but a empty repository isn't the problem here.

  1. The man attemp install vlc from rpmfusion, but your repository is already enabled, then the correct way is open a bugzilla report...

  2. Without complete log is imposible give a complete answer.

Can you share the log from your terminal? we need see the real conflict; I can help you...

For Viber install it from Fedy repo:

Fedy lets you install multimedia codecs and additional software that Fedora doesn’t want to ship, such as MP3 support, Adobe Flash, Oracle Java, and much more, with just a few clicks.

To install Fedy in Fedora, open a Terminal and run the following command: sudo sh -c 'curl https://www.folkswithhats.org/installer | bash'

Hope this will help...

Too many repos bro :P Have you tried disabling the repos YOU added except the RPM Fusion Free and then install? sudo dnf install vlc installs the vlc player from the free rpm repo

Some fusion free programs ans United RPM programs have conflicts. Google fedora handbrake print instructions then load fedora handbrake and VLC. You will probably need both programs
