I have followed all the instructions on the winehq page. In particular, I have run the following commands:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key sudo apt-key add winehq.key sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main'
The first three of the above seemed to work fine. However, the last command gives me the following error:
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-stable : Depends: wine-stable (= 5.0.0~bionic) E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
I'm running Lubuntu 18.04.3 on a USB live stick. (However, if I remember correctly, a couple days ago I got the exact same error on a normal hard disk Lubuntu 18.04.3 installation.)
I've read that a lot of people get similar errors. Unfortunately I haven't found any solutions online that worked.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
EDIT: Thanks for the comments and suggestions everyone. I'll try them out later today.
In the mean time, here's something I don't understand. Ubuntu 18.04 has been around for almost two years now. In all that time, surely somebody has successfully installed wine, right? What did they do to get it working?
