If you have the WineHQ repo enabled, you can install an older version with:

Code: Select all

# Find your <version number> with:
apt policy winehq-stable
# For example: 4.0.2~bionic

# Install this version with:
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable=4.0.2~bionic wine-stable=4.0.2~bionic wine-stable-i386=4.0.2~bionic
Please note that there is no support on older versions.
The older Wine packages are 22 Mb in size, the newer versions are 57 Mb. Is your space really that limited?
