im trying to install wine so i can play fortnight but when i do sudo apt-get install --install-recommends wine-staging i get an error that says wine-staging: depends: wine-staging-amd64 (=2.21.0~trusty) but is not going to be installed depends: wine-staging-i386 (=2.21.0~trusty) E: unable to correct problems
These commands worked for me on a clean 17.10 install.
Based on your error, did you perhaps forget to do the
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386?
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
wget https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key && sudo apt-key add Release.key
sudo apt update && sudo apt install winehq-stable
