[SOLVED] Update has broken Wine

Post by Terryphi »

Since I accepted upgrade to wine-stable 4.0 in Update Manager wine no longer works.

Trying to run a program on wine produces this error:

Code: Select all

Command 'wine' not found, but can be installed with:

sudo apt install wine-development
sudo apt install wine-stable
Running sudo apt install wine-stable confirms that wine is already installed.

What is the solution to this?

This doesn't look right. Package Manager says that I now have these installed:
wine-stable
wine-stable-amd64
wine-stable-i386:i386
wine1.6
wine32:i386
wine 64

Is that before of after the "'wine' not found" error?

What do

Code: Select all

which wine 
wine --version
dpkg -l "*wine*" | grep ii
return?

The fix is probably - depending on what the problem really is - to PURGE ("completely remove") all the wine packages and reinstall the version you want.

Flemur,

That is after the "wine not found" error. There is now a wine directory in /opt but not in /usr/lib. I suspect that this has resulted in a symlink error(s)/ omission(s) in the update package. I am checking some of them. For example, /etc/alternatives/wine is broken because it has a symlink to /usr/bin/wine-stable which does not exist!
If the package is broken a reinstall would solve nothing.

Flemur,
This is the only one that recognises that wine is installed:

Code: Select all

~ $ dpkg -l "*wine*" | grep ii
ii  wine-stable           4.0~bionic   amd64        WINE Is Not An Emulator - runs MS Windows programs
ii  wine-stable-amd64     4.0~bionic   amd64        WINE Is Not An Emulator - runs MS Windows programs
ii  wine-stable-i386:i386 4.0~bionic   i386         WINE Is Not An Emulator - runs MS Windows programs
Not recognised with:

Code: Select all

 ~ $ wine --version

Command 'wine' not found, but can be installed with:

sudo apt install wine-development
sudo apt install wine-stable

I used Timeshift to roll back and then install updates except wine. That fixed it. I have blacklisted wine in Update Manager as the update is clearly broken.

Re: [TEMPORARY SOLUTION] Update has broken Wine

Post by clem »

Hi Terry,

I'm not sure it's "broken" per se, I think it's incomplete. The Ubuntu packaging of WINE in 18.04 is a mess. The upstream version from WineHQ deals with 32-bit dependencies much better, it specifies the mimetype handler (missing in Ubuntu) and it's more up to date. Some of its content is in "winehq-stable" though and you're missing that. We also added missing desktop entries in "wine-desktop-files". Can you upgrade again and install "wine-installer" to make sure the installation is complete?

If you can, I'd also like a "dpkg -l | grep wine" before and after the upgrade.

Hi Clem,
As you suggested I updated wine and then ran

Code: Select all

sudo apt install wine installer
Updated wine now works as expected.

Re: [SOLVED] Update has broken Wine

Thanks Terry,

We might need to add some conflicts/replaces clauses in wine-installer to get rid of libwine, wine32 and wine64.

I can't really automate the process of installing wine-installer. Ubuntu used the name wine-stable for the top package, and that name is already used upstream (not only that, it conflicts with the previously named "wine" metapackage..).

I'll clean this up and update the release notes.

FWIW the wine update in question also uninstalls playonlinux. I had to roll back and blacklist the wine update.

I can't reproduce the playonlinux removal. I tested both 32 and 64 bit, there's no conflict with playonlinux, are you using a PPA version or something?

Hi Clem. No I don't have any ppa's at all.
I installed POL after installation of Linux Mint 19 64 bit, Cinnamon, and the necessary wine got installed alongside:

Fonts-wine
wine-stable 3.0
wine64

The rest is downloaded via POL.(Wine versions 32 and 64 bit)

Can you paste the result of a dist-upgrade with the wine updates whitelisted? I can't understand what would trigger the removal.

I allowed the Wine upgrade. After doing it, I reinstalled PlayOnLinux which had been removed, then ran winecfg, installed the Wine package that was suggested, and then it all worked.
So, no, you do not have to blacklist that Wine update/upgrade.

@Moem: Thanks. I actually tried to reinstall POL after the wine update, and it worked, but I wasn't sure if I needed the extra wine files - so I ran Timeshift, and decided to wait with the installation until I was sure what was going on - following this thread. :)

Hello, no worries.
Yes indeed, it did uninstall POL. I then reinstalled it through the Software Manager and had no issues with that.

@Moem: I'm not sure if the new files are needed, because the wine versions needed for running the few legacy games I've installed in POL, use the wine version that's installed in POL in ~/.PlayOnLinux/wine - and the newest available wine version is v 3.20, because POL is discontinued.
I'm considering the flatpak version of POL; Phoenicis PlayOnLinux.

Well, I was prompted to install an extra Wine package (the development thing) by the terminal output when I ran winecfg, so that's what I did and it worked. That's all I know, I'm not a guru.
