Wine Installation Error

Post by ayodejim » Fri Jan 18, 2019 4:02 am

I am trying to install wine on Ubuntu 18.04, but I encountered two errors.
1. After I type wget -nc, I get the message, File ‘winehq.key’ already there; not retrieving.
2. As I still go to the next step to do sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable, I get, E: Unable to locate package winehq-stable

Please can someone bail me out.

If that's really all you did, you skipped three steps between the two you did:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-key add winehq.key
sudo apt-add-repository 'deb bionic main' 
sudo apt update
