    Cannot install Wine 1.7

    I'll get straight to the point. I recently switched my hard-drive to a 128-gigabyte one, and attempted to install wine. Instead of the easy Software Center download I had expected, I got this error:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:

    wine1.6: Depends: wine1.6-amd64 (= 1:1.6.2-0ubuntu6) but 1:1.6.2-0ubuntu6 is to be installed
    Depends: wine1.6-i386 (= 1:1.6.2-0ubuntu6) but it is not going to be installed
    Miffed a bit, I tried the command line way:
    sudo apt-get install wine
    [sudo] password for user:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    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: wine1.6 but it is not going to be installed or
    wine1.7 but it is not going to be installed
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    I then tried a repository method, a git-clone method, and downloading it from the website, as well as using Synaptic Package Manager, to no avail. Could anyone help me out with this? I'm not sure how to check my Ubuntu version, I believe it's 14.04.

    Sounds as if you have some conflicting repositories. Can you post the output of these commands?
    sudo apt-get update
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list

    Run the following commands as root:
    apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
    apt-get update
    apt-get install wine1.7
