Cannot install wine on Zorin OS pro 16.2

Hello, I tried following the wine hq wiki to install wine from here
I followed the ubuntu 22.04 since by my research this is the zorin os 16.2 which its based on. For some reasons after installing wine stable this error I get this as found in the screenshot:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
winehq-stable : Depends: wine-stable (= 7.0.1~jammy-1)
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Can anyones help and know whats the cause of the problem? Thank you for your help!

apt --fix -broken install
apt --fix-missing update

Zorin 16 is based of Ubuntu 20.04, not 22.04. You could just download a Windows app and run it like you do on Windows and it should ask you if you want to install WINE. Or you can go into system tools and click 'Windows App Support'.


sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo mkdir -pm755 /etc/apt/keyrings
sudo wget -O /etc/apt/keyrings/winehq-archive.key
sudo wget -NP /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

Now...after install all that, do this next (the whole thing)..

sudo apt-get install libgnutls30:i386 libldap-2.4-2:i386 libgpg-error0:i386 libxml2:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386 libsdl2-2.0-0:i386 libfreetype6:i386 libdbus-1-3:i386 libsqlite3-0:i386

Then continue:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable

and install wine tricks if want...worked for me when I had issues.

have wine 8.0 now...Though this is 22 days old, but still want to respond.
