    Wine not installing

    Hey, I'm fairly new to Ubuntu and I'm having trouble installing Wine.
    I've looked at loads of different forums and posts etc about how to fix it but nothings worked. The problem is about package dependencies.

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:

    wine1.4: PreDepends: dpkg (>= 1.15.7.2~) but 1.16.1.2ubuntu7 is to be installed
    Depends: libc6 (>= 2.14) but 2.15-0ubuntu10.2 is to be installed
    Depends: wine1.4-amd64 (= 1.4.1-0ubuntu1~precise1~ppa3) but 1.4.1-0ubuntu1~precise1~ppa3 is to be installed
    Depends: wine1.4-i386 (= 1.4.1-0ubuntu1~precise1~ppa3) but it is a virtual package

    If someone has like a step-by-step guide on how to get past this that would great.

    Can you run the following command in a terminal (Ctrl-Alt-t) and copy and paste the output here?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wine

    Re: Wine not installing

    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.
    wine : Depends: wine1.5 but it is not going to be installed
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    Thats what I got when I ran that line.
