The package was not found. Have you tried running 'sudo apt-get update' first before installing VLC? If not, please do. This will update the index to the latest.

...then try to install VLC again.

If it seems to be not working after that, open your Software Sources then switch to another download server (under Ubuntu Software tab) near you.
