I want to install a new version of Wine because the one I installed with apt-get in Debian is quite old and buggy (0.9.25).

So after doing "apt-get uninstall wine", I followed this guide (http://www.winehq.org/site/download-deb), to install a newer wine version but encountered a few problems:

1. the guide says 

> Now you can install Wine by clicking this link. Alternatively, you can install by going to Applications->Add/Remove and searching for Wine.

The link I'm told to click is apt://wine, but doesn't work in Firefox ("Iceweasel doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (apt) isn't associated with any program. And I don't have a program named "Applications" either.

2. So I tried to manually install with apt-get install wine. But then it gives me this error:

Could anyone help me?
