Interesting. My rpms are from fedora-multimedia, and I note that the
names are slightly different (vlc-core and vlc-extras rather than vlc
and vlc-core). Since I have RPMfusion (free and nonfree) enabled I'm
guessing this is correct, as there doesn't seem to be a way to force
dnf to use the RPMfusion one (other than disabling the official repos
of course).

Aside from that, if I run vlc with no arguments, it does start and I
can then view a video. So it looks like there's a change of behaviour
compared to the previous version where I could simply type 'vlc movie'
and it would run. If that's intentional, then it's a feature and not a
bug, but the error message(s) leave a *lot* to be desired. Maybe time
for a BZ report.
