Can't install Wine on Mint 18.2

Post by Flyboy 70TC » Mon Jan 14, 2019 4:54 pm

Linux Mint 18.2 On HP Pavilion
64 bit
Can't find Wine HQ in software repository and am not successful going through the terminal.
Have followed instructions to enter in terminal but keep getting a message that says "list of sources could not be read". Here's the whole message in the
terminal.

Thanks for your help.

Please copy, paste and run the following commands in a terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -S
and

Code: Select all

cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list
Post back the output by marking, copying and pasting (as you would with any other text) in your next reply

Edit: How could I miss you are on 18.2? :oops: No need then for inxi -S

Philotux,
I'm glad you did miss the 18-2. It turns out that I'm using 19 Tara. {I have several cp's with different Linux distros on each one}
Anyhow, here's the output I got in the terminal:
Wine-2.png
It looks like that will take care of the problem, unless you see something I don't see. Is there more I have to do now?
Thanks for your quick reply.

No, it just shows the content of the additional-repositories.list.

Copy, paste and run the following in a terminal:

Code: Select all

xed admin:///etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list
when prompted type in your password followed by enter. In the file which now opens, keep only the first line and delete all the rest. Save and close the file. Now run

Code: Select all

 sudo apt update 
in a terminal. If you get more error messages, post them back.
