    Under Settings -> Software Sources, in the Ubuntu Software Tab, make sure the "Community-maintained Open Source software (universe)" is checked. Then, hit Reload and try to search again.

    A simpler way is to use the menu. Applications -> Add/Remove Applications and then search for "wine". Check it and click Apply Changes.
