Have you tried installing from the command line, for example 'sudo apt-get install vlc'?

There is a bug with the search feature in Synaptic...

I've noticed the same problem. Running "sudo update-apt-xapian-index" in a terminal seems to force the search index to be rebuilt and fixes the problem. But you'll might need to run it again any time the repositories get updated, at least until the bug is fixed.
