In order to connect to Wifi You can follow the following answer on SE:

Connecting to wifi network through command line

Then You should be able to reinstall KDE.

Also, in order to deinstall VLC You could use

sudo apt purge VLC


sudo apt-get purge VLC

The command according to man page:

sudo apt-get autoremove

autoremove is used to remove packages that were automatically installed to satisfy dependencies for other packages and are now no longer needed as dependencies changed or the package(s) needing them were removed in the meantime.

You should check that the list does not include applications you have grown to like even though they were once installed just as a dependency of another package. You can mark such a package as manually installed by using apt-mark(8). Packages which you have installed explicitly via install are also never proposed for automatic removal.
