is wine installed now ?
...
winehq-stable : Conflicts: wine but 3.0.1-2 is installed
Unfortunately, the winehq version isn't installed. But there is a (Deepin) Wine version installed.
wine-stable-i386:i386 : Depends: libc6:i386 (>= 2.28) but 2.27-3 is installed
This is the reason why the WineHQ installation failed. Deepin uses an older version of libc6.
Probably the Stretch WineHQ version will work

Code: Select all

sudo sed -i 's/sid/stretch/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt update
sudo aptitude --with-recommends install winehq-stable

Dear jkfloris,

Task accomplished. Carried your last instructions. Gecko installation started when I attempted
to open a windows program. It too went well.

Thanks a ton for your untiring efforts to educate me. You have spent your valuable time to help
me in the installation.

Advance Christmas greetings!

The bad news here is that with the switch to the OBS for building. we will no longer be building sid packages, as the OBS does not provide an image for it. The old packages will remain in the WineHQ repository, but there will be no new ones.

It turned out that Deepin is a couple of months behind Debian Sid. In other words the Debian Sid packages could not be installed.
With the disappearance of the sid packages we won't see this issue again.

I expect the Debian Testing WineHQ packages could be installed on Debian Sid(?)
