Following the instructions in https://wiki.winehq.org/Debian I get this error when trying to install wine in Debian 10 amd64 with
apt-get install winehq-stable:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: winehq-stable : Depends: wine-stable (= 18.104.22.168~buster-1) E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
So I try to install
wine-stable and get the same output asking for
wine-stable-i386 (= 22.214.171.124~buster-1)
When trying to install
wine-stable-i386, we are led to an unsolvable situation:
I have checked that I allowed i386:
dpkg --print-foreign-architectures prints
I had winehq already installed with no major problem, but when installing another package, wine and a bunch of lib* packages were removed. I don't know exactly which package caused this, but was probably one of these:
pkg-config. Looking at
dpkg -l I see that often i386 packages have the flag
rc, meaning that they were uninstalled leaving config files, so maybe the package in question uninstalled winehq and i386 lib* stuff.
I tried to install
aptitude install winehq-stable but doesn't solve the deal:
My sources.list looks like this:
Interestingly, I have tried to install libc6:i386 and debian just wants to remove everything else :_D
It seems all problems come when trying to install any i386 thing.
I would prefer avoiding installing the whole system again, so any ideas about how to solve this are welcome!
The output of
apt policy libc6 libc6:i386 is:
