    Exclamation Problem with Wine repository (and repositories in general)

    Hello there. I'm new to Ubuntu and i'm having trouble with the repository while installing Wine. I'm using Ubuntu 20.10 Groovy Gorilla.
    I already installed Wine with sudo apt install wine (but it doesn't even appear in applications) so i followed a tutorial and i enabled 32 bit architecture with:

    sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386


    then i tried to download and add the repository key with:


    wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key
    sudo apt-key add winehq.key

    Note: This lines were used from https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu

    BUT this message appears:


    Warning: apt-key is deprecated. Manage keyring files in trusted.gpg.d instead (see apt-key(8)).


    What can I do to solve this problem?

    I would generally recommend that new users stick to the LTS releases rather than using the guinea pig interim releases. The important stuff gets backported to the LTS releases.

    It wouldn't. It's a program for running other programs, rather than something that you run standalone. It doesn't get a launcher. By default it doesn't get the other handy menu entries (for things like the right click context menus) either. If you want a thing to launch so that you can manage those applications that run through Wine, Lutris is a good choice.

    There's nothing there that suggests that you have a problem. It's a warning message, not an error message, so the key likely successfully got added. At some point the instructions will be updated to show whatever the new-fangled method is instead.
