When I try installing WINE through the software center, it gives me an error saying "Fix Broken Packages First". I went to the Package Manager and Fixed Broken Packages, tried to install again, and it gave me the same message. I have no idea which packages I'm supposed to fix, and I've searched everywhere. I tried everything these pages suggested:
http://ubuntu-virginia.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=947124
http://www.pubbs.net/wine/200912/76957/
But I still get the same message. When I go to my terminal and try to install it through there by entering 'sudo apt-get install wine1.2' it when it asks me if I'm sure I want to, after I enter y it tells me 'abort' and nothing happens.

I'm on Karmic Koala, I followed all the instructions from the Wine Ubuntu installation page, and added ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa to my other software list in software sources.
Can somebody please help me?!

First, do this for the broken packages:
dpkg --configure -a Second, I think the package is called "wine", not "wine1.2" so try
sudo apt-get install wine
