Ubuntu: Unknown error: '' (“The cache has no package named wine1.6-i386”) [duplicate]


I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. The error:

Unknown error: '<class 'KeyError'>' (“The cache has no package named wine1.6-i386”)  

keeps showing in the panel on the desktop. I installed wine some time ago to use only one specific program, but it never worked and I don't really need wine. So I just uninstalled the program as well as wine and hoped this would solve the problem, but it didn't.

I found other posts with a similar problem here, but those solve the problem by updating wine and I wanted to delete it from the system.

What does the error mean? Are there any processes that try to access wine or is it independent of the wine installation? What can I do about it?


Take a look at Unknown error: '<class 'KeyError'>' ("The cache has no package named wine-staging-i386").

For me this did the trick:

sudo apt-get upgrade  


I got the same error. This fixed problem for me:

sudo apt install --reinstall wine1.6-i386


For Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or later, you can simply run

sudo apt-get install wine1.6  


If you want to uninstall just run:

sudo apt remove wine  

If you also want to remove any related packages run:

sudo apt purge wine
