Ubuntu provides software in its standard repositories. If you are looking for specific additional packages, or for a newer version than the one provided in the standard Ubuntu repositories, you might find this in PPAs (personal package archives).

Not all external sources and PPAs provide software for all Ubuntu releases, and it seems that you have added some additional sources to your list of repositories which do not contain anything for bionic. Who told you to add these PPAs? They do not work for bionic.

Remove ppa:pipelight/stable ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/updates and https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu from your list of repository sources, and the "404" errors and "no release file" messages should be gone.

I was trying to Install WINE to run steam + Games. x-swat for nvidia drivers, and Pipelight for Netflix on Opera since its doesnt have HTML 5 or Silverlight.

Nickk Kelly (rezent) said : #3

New problem. I cant seem to remove only WINE-builds.

Please choose from the following available PPAs:
 * 'test-builds': test-builds
 * 'wine-builds': Official Wine builds (DEPRECATED)
root@MaliceMrk2:/home/owner# sudo apt-add-repository --remove ppa:wine-builds
Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:~wine-builds/ubuntu/ppa'.
ERROR: '~wine-builds' user or team does not exist.

Im confused on the problem, Any help?

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #4

 https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu is no ppa, but an external source.

Try
sudo apt-add-repository --remove https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu

If this does not work, then use the program software-properties-gtk and delete the respective entry there.

Nickk Kelly (rezent) said : #5

I did that. and i suppose it removed it. Does WINE not work anymore?

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #6

Why should wine not work any more?
There is a recent version in the standard Ubuntu repositories for bionic. No need for a PPA or external source or anything additional.

sudo apt-get install wine

Nickk Kelly (rezent) said : #7

I see... I installed it.
Its not giving me the option to Run with Wine. :/

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #8

Try from the command line

wine program arguments

something like
wine /msdos/windows/sol.exe
or
wine notepad C:\\TEMP\\README.TXT

Can you help with this problem?
