This might have been noticed before, as i did not do a in-depth search on the forums now. Sorry if it has been reported (But its still not fixed).

I notice the Ubuntu .deb repository has the 4.0 package available, but its in the wrong "name" when it comes to Ubuntu packages.

is of a HIGHER VERSION than:

And thus is wont be updated automatically.
~rc7 > ~bionic (Alphabetically r > b).

When 4.1 is released, it will be updated tho, but ref. ubuntu "naming scheme", you cannot do the naming like that.

Probably should have been called something like
to be picked up, but then it would not be inline with when 4.1 comes along.

Dunno who maintains the Ubuntu/debian packages here, or if its ever being read here. Should i make a bugzilla report for it? Can you?

It's a known issue, and as you say, will be solved once 4.1 comes out (expected Monday). There's no need for a bug report.

In the mean time, you can either install the winehq-stable 4.0 package or force your package manager to install wine-devel or wine-staging 4.0 by specifying the version, e.g.,
sudo apt install wine-devel-i386=4.0~bionic
sudo apt install wine-devel=4.0~bionic
sudo apt install wine-devel-amd64=4.0~bionic
sudo apt install winehq-devel=4.0~bionic

Adding an extra .0 to the version number has been suggested by others and is probably the way I will handle it next year.
