I have seen alot of assertion failed errors over the years (mainly in native Windows) and they are quite hard to pin point. I recommend that you uninstall Office then upgrade your Wine version as per the instruction below and lastly try installing Office again.

First add the add the PPA.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

Then update your system.

sudo apt-get update

Then try installing Wine 1.5

sudo apt-get install wine1.5

That should get you up and running.

Adding the WineHQ PPA Repository
