I have updated my OS from 14.04 to 15.10 (Both AMD64). In the past, wine installs without any problem on 14.04 machines, but this time there are problems.

I tried to install wine(Microsoft Windows Compatibility Layer meta-package) directly from Ubuntu Software Centre. However, it tells me that package dependencies cannot be resolved with the following information:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

wine:

Then, I tried to install it using command lines. sudo apt-get install wine This time it says

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
wine : Depends: wine1.6 but it is not going to be installed or
             wine1.8 but it is not going to be installed

Installing one of these packages bring out more unmet dependencies. I tried sudo apt-get -f install but it fails since 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded. Updating gives The following packages have been kept back: libgbm1. Removing libgbm1 does not seem to work.

Other methods that I have tried but failed: Install wine1.6-amd64 from ubuntu-wine ppa asked for installing wine1.6-i386 as well

sudo apt-get -o Debug::pkgProblemResolver=yes dist-upgrade fails since it says 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

  • I believe you need to run sudo apt-get install wine1.6. – TheWanderer Mar 20 '16 at 1:34
  • @Zacharee1 It says The following packages have unmet dependencies: wine1.6 : Depends: wine1.6-i386 (= 1:1.6.2-0ubuntu10) – Henricus V. Mar 20 '16 at 1:35
  • Try running sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -f && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get install wine1.6 – TheWanderer Mar 20 '16 at 1:36
  • @Zacharee1 I have the i386 architecture. update is ` Unable to connect to archive.ubuntukylin.com:10006:` and failed to fetch packages from the same site. sudo apt-get install -f fails since it says 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded. Finally, sudo apt-get install wine1.6 gives the same result as above. – Henricus V. Mar 20 '16 at 1:41
  • You have Ubuntu Kylin? – TheWanderer Mar 20 '16 at 1:42
