Try using a different mirror repository or the official ubuntu repository.;)

I tried the repository, but it has 1.2.2
and the site offered the file as an installer, not an upgrade... and it was a tar.bz2 file. I dont know how to compile

Wine have their own PPA: http://www.winehq.org/download/ubuntu

One note of caution. After the very latest wine has been installed by this PPA Update Manager might offer to update wine for you. Be careful. Update manager will update wine 1.3 with wine 1.2, if you let it.
