Installing Zorin Windows App Support - missing dependencies

Another user also had trouble with installing Zorin Windows App Support.
He found that even changing to Main Server in the Software & Updates app did not actually change him to main server.
In order to fix it, he needed to manually edit his sources.list to remove the regional id.
This is what I would try, in your position.

I did check that, that's not the case:

Yes! same thing happening again...

I'm going insane of this error ...

Did you add 32bit architecture, before running the above command?

No, just the one you gave me earlier

You might follow these steps to instead install Wine 6 or Wine 7:

I did try that but i guess something is wrong with apt

after another apt update:

sudo apt --fix-broken install


This is insane...

sudo apt install wine-stable && sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable

with root

sudo apt --fix-broken install && sudo apt install -y wine-stable


Can you double check that in Software & updates under "Download from" you are set to Main Server?

yes i did test the commands with main server aswell

i guess its not about download

You are not the only person that has run into this problem with installing wine...
One of the recent ones learned that changing to "Main Server" in Software & Updates was not enough.
They needed to edit the actual sources.list file in /etc/apt to ensure all main universe repos were actually set to Main instead of their regional server.

its not about wine! if you see my most recent php installation was just because of this apt weird look,
however wine was working pretty good before php installed
so i think that library may was in use of both apps

We have just spent a large amount of time trying to get wine installed.
Wine is not installed. You are trying to install it.
It is not APT. It is not Zorin OS. It is not php.
It is most likely a Regional Server that is not properly configured and up to date. Which would explain why you struggled with php, too.
Which is why:

I will allow another user to step in and assist you in configuring your sources.list manually.
I did not spend such a large amount of my time trying to help a person only to withstand being snapped at.

Well I'm sure you know so much more about such problems please take my apologize if I've been rude or unthankful.

I just guessed that maybe the problem is something rather than repository server, even that I always tried all of those commands in both way and I've been always changing it from exact sources.list file.

However I don't think anyone else would take this problem confusion here, I'll still may ask it in some other platforms later but if there was any help or answers it would be great and I'm thankful.

Again thanks for you're time, I've installed the php at least and this topic is already solved!

I owe you an apology just as much. Yesterday was one of those days where everything that could go wrong - did. With Vigor. I was at wits end by the end of the day.

And this is a particularly frustrating issue. I have encountered this with other users before.
What makes this one so very frustrating is that according to Ubuntu, all regional servers are supposed to be up to date and contain all the same packages as the main server. And the Ubiquity Installer defaults to setting users up with their regional servers for sources.
The problem is...
Oftentimes, the regional servers are not up to date and are missing packages.
It happens time and time again... Due to this, on this forum, we have taken to ensuring that we advise users to switch to main server.

I have noticed that some users continue to experience the same troubles after doing so. Because the Gnome Application Software & Updates that they use to switch to main server will show that they did... but does not always actually change it in the sources.list.
It's like pulling teeth.

I am on the Main Server and when I run the above commands, either wine, wine32, wine stable or zorin-windows-app-support will install, no problem.
What you may do to help yourself out is start a New Thread on the Wine or Windows App Support installation and see if we can troubleshoot with a fresh clean start on checking the sources.list and packages.
