    I have no idea what your doing here but I did exactly what you did 
and got:

Installed: none
Candadate: none
  Version Table:

This means MAYBE that I do not have the right thing somewhere. This is 
why I dislike Intrepid. It took me 5 minutes to set up VLC on Hardy to 
watch a DVD movie. It has taken 2 days and counting to do the same thing 
on Intrepid.
