Error installing Windows app support

I'm trying to run an avd on Zorin and it suggested I install Windows App Support. This errors out when I try to do it through the software store. apt install seems to have some issues as well. How do I reset all this so I can get the software to install?

Can you please post the terminal output from trying to install it?
