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.
