What did you try to do?

everything that’s mentioned here

So I guess you did not try to remove it yet.

You could try to do something like this:

sudo apt remove -y winehq-stable
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install -y winehq-stable

why would I remove it when it has not installed yet?

Because you tried to install it and it did not work. So you want to have a “clean slate” before attempting an actual installation.

so, as you’ve noticed I am using elementary os. I think eOS has something different than Ubuntu that’s why its not installing wine. I followed this method and it installed wine perfectly.

Thanks Akito for your assistance. good-bye
