Update 4.4 > 4.10 possible?

Post by drayzen » Fri Jun 14, 2019 12:36 am

I have 4.4 installed on Mint 19.1 and was trying to find a way to update to 4.10.
The Mint Update Manager does not notify of any new versions being available.
Synaptic shows 4 packages under Upgradeable but the Apply button is greyed out, so no way to trigger the update.
Given I can't find anything in the FAQ or on the internet that talks about applying an update at the command line and there's no mention of updating on the installation instructions page (https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu), I figured the process must be to just run the install process again.

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-devel
When I tried that I get the following:

Code: Select all

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 winehq-devel : Depends: wine-devel (= 4.10~bionic)
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Is this possible, or is it necessary to do a clean install each time when using development releases?

You have run sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main' before, right? https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu

Because when it depends on wine-devel from here in version 4.10 https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubunt ... ary-amd64/ then it should find the file https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubunt ... _amd64.deb and download it as an update.

Have you run "apt update && apt upgrade && apt dist-upgrade" before your try? It does not update on itself to the 4.10 version, right?

No, you could update the packages but after version 4.4 Wine has a new dependency.
