Running Ubuntu kernel (armv7l) on an ODROID U3.

Using the command apt-get in the terminal results in finding the package online but not after it downloads.

Of course you suing a device like that I'm assuming you know what you are doing and have root permissions right(?)

apt-get downloads package deb files to "/var/cache/apt/archives". Have a look there and see if it is there.

If not, do

sudo apt-get -d package_name

the '-d" option is the same as "--download-only"... and will download without installing it, to that same directory. Of course you could always also just use wget to dl it to any directory...

i did some more research and there is a separate WINE program for arm based processors.
