So apt-get update has nothing to say about broken packages? It is a double check for me.

Which are not stretch. So probably more of a Debian bug vs a AntiX bug I think. But I can be wrong. Won't be the 1st time I am mistaken in my thinking when I am posting.

I usually pay attention to the removed section and newly installed section of a terminal readout when I do dist-upgrades. Before I say yes.
I can run
Run 'apt list --upgradable' to see them.
Before I say yes to everything also if wanting more details.

I have other Video players, but I always used VLC and thought it so strange when it removed VLC and did not update: Giving me the reason of not having the dependency libfontconfig1 2.12. I always use Snaptic for upgrades, but have been trying your command line suggestions.

  libupnp6 libusageenvironment3 libvcdinfo0 libvlc-bin libvlc5 libvlccore8 libvlccore9
  libxcb-xv0
Use 'apt autoremove' to remove them.

There is indeed an issue with the antiX vlc-plugin-base package depending on a newer libfontconfig1 than Stretch has, at least for the 64-bit deb...was it perhaps built against the version from the MX test repo that GIMP 2.10.X pulls in?

Note that building packages with pbuilder can help prevent against these type of things.

OK I have found out the problem on my box and will repackage and send to repo asap
