Ok so I am trying to fix a broken package in order to install wine. When I do “sudo apt-get install wine” I get:

> sam@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install wine [sudo] password for sam: > Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree        Reading> state information...

The following> information may help to resolve the situation:> > The following packages have unmet dependencies:  wine : Depends:> wine1.4 but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct> problems, you have held broken packages.

Then I try “sudo apt-get install wine1.4″

sam@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install wine1.4Reading package lists... DoneBuilding dependency tree       Reading state information... DoneSome packages could not be installed. This may mean that you haverequested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstabledistribution that some required packages have not yet been createdor been moved out of Incoming.The following information may help to resolve the situation:The following packages have unmet dependencies: wine1.4 : Depends: wine1.4-i386 (= 1.4.1-0ubuntu1) but it is not installable           Recommends: gnome-exe-thumbnailer but it is not going to be installed or                       kde-runtime but it is not going to be installed           Recommends: winetricks but it is not going to be installedE: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

So someone told me to try Synaptic. Here is what I tried:

  1. Searched wine
  2. Right clicked wine1.4
  3. Said I needed to mark other packages
  4. Mark
  5. I click Apply. It says, You have to fix broken packages first!
  6. I do Edit>Fix Broken Packages I get this

    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
    E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
    E: Unable to correct dependencies
    E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
    E: Unable to correct dependencies

I am really frustrated. I removed the Official Wine PPA and tried it I even tried

sudo apt-get -f install: 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

Please help me :(
