trouble installing wine-staging on Ubuntu 18.04

Post by speedrunnerG55 » Tue Jan 08, 2019 12:14 am

I wanted to update to the latest wine-staging so i followed the instructions in https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu

but when I get to
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-staging
it outputs

Code: Select all

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The way to track down dependency issues is to work your way backwards. Try installing wine-staging-i386, and see what apt complains about. Whatever it is, try installing that. Repeat until you get to whatever is blocking everything else and fix that.

thnx that worked perfectly, for some reason I was so caught up with it telling me that I had broken packages I thought I needed to fix something. I didn't just read the message above it >.<
