  • Try sudo apt-get install --install-recommends wine-stable (and don't write in capital). – Jerare Mar 22 '20 at 11:24
  • You have held packages, ie. it's likely your issue is prior command(s) that failed. Have you tried sudo apt -f install, and it's best if we're provided your release instead of guessing. We can't look up possible issues until we have that information. – guiverc Mar 22 '20 at 12:08
