With a fresh copy of 17.10 ubuntu installed. I have found a repeatable error which I believe is messing up my wine installation permanently. After the error I simply format the system and retry another time. The error message is encountered when installing winehq. Both stable and staging versions run into the exact same problem.
I cannot find an answer on the internet. Please help if you can.
