The repository 'https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu xenial Release' does not have a Release file.

I running Ubuntu 16.04 (xenial) and am trying to install wine using the following step:

- sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
- wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key
- sudo apt-key add winehq.key

- Adding the repository to /etc/apt/sources.list so the last lines read …
deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ xenial main
# deb-src https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ xenial main

But when I do the sudo apt update I get …

Ign:1 https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu xenial InRelease
Err:2 https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu xenial Release

Hit:3 http://au.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial InRelease

Hit:5 http://au.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-backports InRelease

But I can get the Release file using :
wget https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/dists/xenial/Release
it find the Release file OK …
