So it looks like I have a problem with libfaudio0?

Also, why doesn't my second ``` end the code format?

  • Can you look at the answer here elementaryos.stackexchange.com/questions/25260/… for some hints? – Vlad Dec 29 '20 at 23:30
  • Yes, I had a look at that but I don't think it's the same. It says about removal a focal ppa but I've not got that – Michael wx Dec 30 '20 at 12:18
  • If I'm supposed to adapt solution that to what I have then I don't know how – Michael wx Dec 30 '20 at 12:18
  • Folow the steps detailed there, especially the one about the FAudio package (libfaudio0) is not normally available for distributions based on Ubuntu 18.04. Newer versions of wine depend on it. – Vlad Dec 30 '20 at 12:35
  • I don't know how to do step 1 though. That problem mentions focal in the error report and the solution says to remove something that has focal in it. My error message mentions bionic, not focal. Where it says about removing a repository do I just swap the word focal for bionic? – Michael wx Dec 31 '20 at 13:10
