When I turned my computer on today, I opened a terminal and ran sudo apt-get update followed by sudo apt-get upgrade. But I read on OMG! Ubuntu that the latest version of Wine, 1.3.25, "breaks audio playback for Windows apps". I obviously didn't want to break sound in my games, so I decided I had to keep the old 1.3.24 version until the problem was fixed. I didn't know how to stop the software upgrade, so I just pressed Ctrl+Z while it was downloading the new version. What should I do now?

I Strongly suggest you to read the comments there. – Uri Herrera Jul 27 '11 at 16:49
Pressing Ctrl+Z will only push the process to the background. It might still be running. type fg to bring the process to the foreground. As Uri says, read the comments on the page, there might be some solution mentioned. And just FYI, Ctrl+C will stop the command. – theTuxRacer Jul 27 '11 at 16:56
They said something about Wine-pulse but I don't want to apply any patches or use special versions of Wine, I just want to keep using wine-1.3.24 until the problem is fixed. I typed fg and then pressed Ctrl+C as @Kaustubh P said. If I go to Synaptic and lock the current version, will that work? – Nicolás S. Jul 27 '11 at 18:45

If depend that you have de ppa of wine, if you dont have dont worry Ubuntu only upgrade the stable version of Wine.

In case that you have the ppa of wine, you have desactive in origen of software.
