You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Please anyone can help me to resolve it. I am reasonably new to Linux, kindly request you to write the commands so that i can perform it into my machine and test it right way.

Thank You for your time

Have you tried to install it using yum. You seem to have installed packages without certain dependencies. yum could actually resolve the dependencies better.

Please try to remove the packages you installed and start afresh with:
Code:
yum update    # this is because you need an up-to-date system for there to be no conflicts.
yum search vlc
yum install PACKAGE

I believe RHEL is free to download but I know you have to pay for maintenance. if you don't pay for maintenance then you don't get updates. The easiest way to find dependencies is via yum but if you choose to do this manually (ie. you don't pay for a subscription) you have to find the dependencies yourself.

A simple solution may be to use a different distro. Any particular reason you use RHEL? Centos is free and is an unbadged version of RHEL. Download Centos 7 to solve your problem

https://www.centos.org/

You may wish to try another distro. Please sing out if you need more advice.

Cheers

PAY!!!!! for the redhat REQUIRED support contract
or DO NOT USE RHEL!!!!

install CentOS 7.4

without the required support contract you do not get updates and security fixes
basically you will not be able to install software without that contract

If you start again with CentOS, you'll get LibreOffice installed by default. For getting other things, see here
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories
and note the advice about setting priorities. EPEL is safe and very useful, RPMfusion is vital for the media codecs that are patented in the USA and so left out of CentOS, and Nux has VLC. To track where to find things,
