Well, since you have broken packages I would suggest you to use the following command:

sudo apt-get update -f

To fix any broken packages.

and install wine again

sudo apt-get install wine

And you didn't have to add a repository, since wine is listed by default, a regular sudo apt-get install wine would have been enough.

[EDIT]: wow the whole question just changed -.-
