Error trying to install Wine

Asked by Raoul Soibelmann on 2013-05-10

I had installed Wine on Ubuntu 13.04.

Had to remove in order to change my computer.

Re-installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my new machine, then automatically updated to 13.04.

For my surprise, Wine failed to install with the following messages:

Ubuntu Software Center
Wine Windows Program Loader

Wine Windows Program Loader
Microsoft Windows Compatibility Layer (Binary Emulator and Library)

Packaged dependencies cannot be resolved
The following packages have unmet dependencies:

wine1.4: PreDepends: dpkg (>= 1.15.7.2~) but 1.16.10ubuntu1 is to be installed
         Depends: libc6 (>= 2.14) but 2.17-0ubuntu5 is to be installed
         Depends: wine1.4-amd64 (= 1.4.1-0ubuntu5) but 1.4.1-0ubuntu5 is to be installed
         Depends: wine1.4-i386 (= 1.4.1-0ubuntu5) but it is not going to be installed

Q4Wine:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:

wine1.4: PreDepends: dpkg (>= 1.15.7.2~) but 1.16.10ubuntu1 is to be installed
         Depends: libc6 (>= 2.14) but 2.17-0ubuntu5 is to be installed

         Depends: wine1.4-i386 (= 1.4.1-0ubuntu5) but it is not going to be installed

My question is simple: WHAT CAN I DO TO INSTALL WINE AGAIN?

Many Thanks,

Raoul

Great news, the Image File of Ubuntu finally worked on my computer.
There was a small problem on the hardware configuration of the drive, which
was resolved.

The installation of Ubundu 13.04 from the Image Disk came clean, clear and
very fast.

Re-assure you that all those problems have disappeared.

Time to close this case and open the bottle of Champagne.

Three cheers,

Raoul S
