[Wine] Having trouble updating

Sorry for posting such a noobish question, but I checked the FAQ and I don't know what I'm doing wrong...

I'm using Linux Mint Elyssa, which I've been told is a Debian-based version of Linux, so I first installed Wine using the instructions here (http://www.winehq.org/site/download-deb).  This gave me Wine 1.0, although I had thought I'd gotten 1.1.4.

So today, I decided to update to 1.1.6, but I have no idea what to do with those .tar.bz2 files.  Instead, I decided to try out the alternate instructions for the Git Tree.  When I type this command, however...

git diff-index -p HEAD > total-1.1.6.diff

...I get a "fatal: not a git repository" error.  So I go to try the CVS commands.  This one seems to work fine, but when I check my version again by typing "wine --version" I still get 1.0.

Is there something really obvious I'm missing here?
