Read what you post.  The answer is right here ^^^^.

Looks like you are using a ready-made Wine, not brewing your own, and
you didn't bother to choose one that could run on your system.  That one
was linked with glibc-2.2, and can't run with an earlier glibc.  If you
build it from source, Wine is happy to run with glibc-2.1.x or even

Use the source, pay a little attention when you select a ready-made
Wine, or upgrade glibc to the latest and greatest.  Your choice.
