I have downloaded wine successfully using software center.

When I click install it gives me an error - Some unrestricted softwares needs to be installed and there is an error with my internet connection.

How many times do i need to download this wine? I am confused, greatly confused.

Open Software sources and check all repositories

open the update manager and press check button

Then press install button in the software centre
