As far as I can remeber since Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric) the synaptic package management program is no longer part of a default install.
It still can be added easily:
Either open software center, seach for synaptic and install it,
or open a terminal (ctrl-alt-t) and issue the command
sudo apt-get install synaptic

And for wine:
are there error messages when you try installing it? If yes, please provide the exact text.
