Purge Wine (sudo apt-get remove --purge wine) and then make sure that
you update your key & repository reference from a terminal:
First, open a terminal window. Then add the repository's key to your
system's list of trusted APT keys by copy and pasting the following:

wget -q -O- | sudo
apt-key add -

Next, add the repository to your system's list of APT sources:

For Ubuntu Gutsy (7.10):
sudo wget
-O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list

Then $ sudo apt-get update

Then from Synaptics reinstall Wine
