While trying to install wine on my computer, I got the following error:

$ sudo apt-get install wine1.5.1
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package wine1.5.1
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'wine1.5.1'

How can I install wine?
