I had it installed previously and it gave the same error updating. I tried purging it and installing fresh and I can't install it. See the above.

I fixed this issue. I added the OBS repositories as in the warning on the install page on winehq for Ubuntu and it installed. I did not need this previously. This surprised me that it worked.

FYI
wine-staging 4.13 is the first Wine Staging release with faudio enabled.
wine-staging 4.12.1 (and earlier) disabled faudio - since it wasn't packaged in the main Debian / Ubuntu repositories.
