comment How to remove the Wine Windows Program Loader from dashboard launcher in ubuntu 12.04
If the Wine launcher icon does not have a right-click context menu with locking toggle, that is a bug. This question should instead be filed as a bug report, and as such is off-topic, thanks! Instructions on filing a bug report are here.

comment Can't fix broken packages
Recommendation closure as too localized or NARQ, from the answer looks like OP just reinstalled. Also, the fault was caused by some actions that I doubt will reoccur now that the partner repo is enabled by default.
