Wine 5.0 install problem

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
Trying to install Wine 5.0 Everything going OK until I get to add repository and then I get this error:
E: The repository ‘ focal Release’ does not have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can’t be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
New to Ubuntu so error messages don’t mean anything but can follow instructions!

The error you’re getting here isn’t related to the Wine 5.0 installation. You have added a repository for software like Conky Manager which is not available (or no longer developed) for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

So, here’s what you have to do:

  1. Enter this command in your terminal:

    sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:teejee2008/ppa

  2. Next, enter this:

    sudo apt update

You can also refer to this to know more about it:

This should resolve the error you see. Also, I’d suggest you follow our Wine 5.0 article to ensure that you’re installing Wine 5.0 the right way:

Let me know if that worked!


Thank you for your prompt reply, wine is now installed via your install notes.
Just installed Ubuntu on old pc last weekend so this is all geeky to me.
Now I need Wine-Mono - where do I find that?

I think this should help you out:
