reading package lists... done

building dependency tree

reading state information... done

some packages could not be installed. this may mean you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of incoming.

the following information may help to resolve the situation:


The following packages have unmet dependencies:

playonlinux: depends: wine but it is not installable or wine-unstable but it is not installable

E: unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Somewhere I read instructions that you need to install wine before you install PoL.

Yes, always install Wine first in Ubuntu/Mint with your package manager.  Then install PlayOnLinux.  The "default" virtual drive is based on the initial Wine installation.  The "system" Wine is also based on the initial Wine installation.
