Bug Description

Whilst trying to update my software, the installer would complete and then the icon would reappear for the item to be installed again. I clicked on it once and then same thing happened. Soft Boot and then all was OK. Tried to login to work PC via Citrix Xenapp and then everything just went haywire.

Rebooted and then the bug was reported. Unsure if Citrix is still working but will try

And did you try re-installing vlc-data as the error message suggests?
