I accepted that update today, and have no issues. It was primarily a security update, so unless there is a good reason that so far id unidentified, updating seems a good idea to me.

Re: vlc updates today

The updates offered by debian appear to mess up the MX vlc installation.

[RESOLVED]vlc updates today

Some vlc updates from debian are being offered today: I suspect they are not good for MX.
I have not accepted them and suggest no MX user should accept them.

Re: How to install OpenCPN

Bummer!
In my innocence I installed version5 from the repo and it is very flaky - should be removed from the repo.
Not really disastrous for me because of course I do not use this big desktop machine on the boat.
4.8.2 was fine.
