"Not have a release file"

Post by Brendo412 » Sat Jun 23, 2018 11:40 pm

Im trying to download Wine and i keep getting this

sudo apt-add-repository https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/
Ign:1 https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu cosmic InRelease
Err:2 https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu cosmic Release
404 Not Found [IP: 151.101.200.69 443]
Hit:3 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu cosmic InRelease
Reading package lists... Done
E: The repository 'https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu cosmic Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
W: Target Sources (main/source/Sources) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:1 and /etc/apt/sources.list:4

I need help, Thanks

There are no packages for cosmic, and I wouldn't expect any before it's released. Versions for which WineHQ builds packages are listed on https://wiki.winehq.org/Download.

Ubuntu 18.10 cosmic was released on 18. October and there's still no package for it.

We are in the process of changing WineHQ builds from a private build system to the OBS. There are already packages for Cosmic on the OBS at https://download.opensuse.org/repositor ... 0_standard.

Eventually the packages will be moved here, but for now you can get them directly from the OBS. Simply download and add the OBS Release.key from the above URL, then add the repository with

Code: Select all

sudo apt-add-repository https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine:/Debian/Ubuntu_18.10_standard ./

Thanks, but it's missing the i386 package

Edit: Looks like it's working...

The wine-staging-i386_3.19~cosmic_i386.deb package is present in the i386 subdirectory of the repository and should have been found by your package manager. How did you try to install the package? I have seen that problem when downloading the packages and trying to install them locally instead of adding the repository. You can do that, but have to install the packages in the right order (basically, i386 has to be installed first).

@dimesio

Btw I've just been testing the OBS Ubuntu 18.04 repository and it is working really well...
Fired up winehq-staging-3.19 and I'm able to run the Battle.net Launcher.

Nicely done! 8)
