How do I upgrade to Wine 1.5 on Ubuntu 10.04?

I have tried sudo apt-get install wine1.5, but I can't find it.

You have to compile it yourself or you upgrade to Ubuntu Precise Pangolin 12.04 and use the WineHQ PPA.

The newest version you can get from the Wine-PPA for Lucid is 1.4.

I think the better solution is to upgrade your system because support for Ubuntu 10.04 will end in April 2013. – BuZZ-dEE Sep 17 '12 at 16:25
I don't have a Lucid install to test it, but it looks like 1.3 to me (it's the 1.4 version of 1.3 as I read it, or it is some ugly hack to force wine1.3 to upgrade to 1.4). Anyway it doesn't matter, to use 1.5 he should upgrade or learn to compile the hard way (wine is one of the hardest programs to compile as it has tons of dependencies that are only needed at runtime). – Javier Rivera Sep 17 '12 at 16:34
@Javier Rivera if you look in the "VERSION" file in the wine1.3_1.4.orig.tar.gz archiv, you see "Wine version 1.4". – BuZZ-dEE Sep 17 '12 at 16:50
