I’ve finally made the jump from removing Windows from my life, but alas I do still need some Windows-only applications. I’ve been trying to install Wine on my Ryzen 5 1500x system running Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, but there are just gigantic rabbit holes of unmet dependencies.
When I try running
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-stable, I am shown this:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: winehq-stable : Depends: wine-stable (= 3.0.3~cosmic) E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
So, then I figured I’d run
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends wine-stable to install the dependency. Then wine-stable has a dependency that needs installed: wine-stable-i386. The list goes on and on forever, and I’m kinda at a loss as to what to do.
Note: Pre-install I ran
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends wine-stable &
wget -qO- https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key | sudo apt-key add - &
sudo apt-add-repository 'deb http://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ artful main' as multiple guides instructed.
