[Solved] vlc: missing mandatory argument `–user-agent=”VLC media player”‘

Yesterday after upgrading the packages VLC refused to start giving out following error message:

VLC media player 1.1.1 The Luggage (revision exported)
vlc: unknown option or missing mandatory argument `--user-agent="VLC media player"'
Try `vlc --help' for more information.

To solve the error, just reinstall vlc:

sudo apt-get install vlc
