Error installing winehq-stable. Ubuntu 18.04

Post by nik_11 » Sun Feb 09, 2020 1:27 pm

Installation according to instructions
After sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable ~ 50% progress get an error:
Errors occurred while processing the following packages:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Linux 5.3.0-28-generic #30~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 17 06:14:09 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

What am I doing wrong?

As the error indicates, there is a problem with installing libsane1.
This is not a package from Wine, so you will have to ask on a Ubuntu forum why you can't install this package.

A few tips that might help:
- check the log files for what went wrong. /var/log/dpkg.log, /var/log/apt/history.log and /var/log/apt/term.log
- An older version of libsane1 has a bug which prevents installing the 32 and 64 bit packages at the same time. ... ug/1771068
