Currently Wine won't install on KDE Neon

Wine won't install for me on KDE Neon, with or without Wine's repo.

I had Wine (wine-stable 4.0.1) installed and running but today I thought it was a good idea to upgrade to wine-staging, so I uninstalled wine-stable to install wine-staging after.
Big mistake I made, now I do not have a way of installing Wine at all, even if I remove the WIne repo and try to install the old wine-stable 3.0.1 from the distro repos.

While trying to install wine-stable from the Wine repo:

While trying to install wine-staging from the Wine repo:

Not even PlayOnLinux will install:

And without the Wine repo and installing the one from the distro's repo, it apparently will install but it will remove a bunch of stuff from my system:

How can I solve this?

At a glance your problem is probably a PPA and not specifically wine related. Possibly a pulseaudio ppa. `apt policy libpulse0` might give a hint

Thank you very much for helping me.

This is the output:
Code: Select all
$ apt policy libpulse0
libpulse0:
  Installed: 1:12.2-5~bionic1
  Candidate: 1:12.2-5~bionic1
  Version table:
 *** 1:12.2-5~bionic1 100
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     1:11.1-1ubuntu7.2 500
        500 http://pt.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-updates/main amd64 Packages
        500 http://la-mirrors.evowise.com/ubuntu bionic-updates/main amd64 Packages
     1:11.1-1ubuntu7 500

About a month ago or so I remember installing and then removing PulseEffects, I probably installed a ppa for it back then. Maybe it has something to do with it?

As per that policy command you can see that the package is installed as 1:12.2-5~bionic1 while the highest available version in the currently enabled repositories is 1:11.1-1ubuntu7.2, so yeah, that PPA you had before is what broke your system.

ppa-purge is your friend when cleaning up a PPA's mess

Thank you so much for the help once again.

I just installed ppa-purge and checked it out, is it necessary to know what ppa I used, install it and run the command?

Or can I run it without having to trace back what ppa I used?
Btw, could this ppa have been the one? It was a while ago, I cannot remember for sure.

Or alternatively, is there a way I can just downgrade the referred package libpulse0 to the previous version, in example by removing it and reinstalling it again?

Ok it was indeed that specific ppa and I already managed to install it:
Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mikhailnov/pulseeffects

ran:
Code: Select all
sudo ppa-purge ppa:mikhailnov/pulseeffects

and all the packages were downgraded successfully. No packages were removed and no applications were broken.

And right after I was able to install wine-stable 4.0.1 from Wine's repo.

Thank you so much for the help!

But concerning my initial intention of installing wine-staging 4.8, I still was not able to do it. This is the output:
https://pastebin.com/raw/wA115eiV

In Wine's install page there's this:
Dialog-warning.svgBeginning with Wine 4.5, the wine-devel packages for Ubuntu 18.04, 18.10, and 19.04 require libfaudio0 as a dependency. Since the distro does not provide it, libfaudio0 packages can be downloaded from the OBS. See https://forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=32192 for details

If you have previously installed a Wine package from another repository, please remove it and any packages that depend on it (e.g., wine-mono, wine-gecko, winetricks) before attempting to install the WineHQ packages, as they may cause dependency conflicts.

but I really cannot understand what to do. I tried installing libfaudio0 for both amd64 and i386 but still the error remaining while trying to install wine-staging 4.8. Is there a way to install it in KDE Neon?
