I'm on Ubuntu 18.04.1 and trying to install wine via sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-staging Which then tells me

`Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies: winehq-staging : Depends: wine-staging (= 3.19.0~bionic) E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. ` By using synaptic, I've come to a conclusion that there are no broken packages so, what do?

  • How did you enable winehq-staging and wine-staging? Are you using the WineHQ repositories? – Thomas Ward Nov 1 '18 at 16:14
  • I enabled them with sudo apt-add-repository https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ – GottaSlay Nov 1 '18 at 16:16
  • And you did a sudo apt-get update afterwards, correct? – Thomas Ward Nov 1 '18 at 16:17
  • Yes on the site it also tells you to do so. – GottaSlay Nov 1 '18 at 16:22
