Hello,
I am trying to install wine for the Ubuntu 20.04 that I am using via the guidelines provided by the wine website.

These are the steps I have made:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key
sudo apt-key add winehq.key
sudo add-apt-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ groovy main'

And now the last command in the process seems to have an issue that I have not been able to figure out.
The command:
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable

After I insert this command I get this:
"Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that 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:
winehq-stable : Depends: wine-stable (= 6.0.0~groovy-1)
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages."

How do I solve this?

I tried to reinstall the Wine via the tutorial you sent, it worked, thank you!
Although now I have a new problem, I am not able to run Lutris for some reason.
I followed the installation process on their website and everything seemed to run smoothly.
But when I try to open the app via the search bar, it does not open anything.
What to do?

I don't know anything about wine (unless it's the kind you drink).

I did notice that OP said they were on 20.04 and that the repo they added is for groovy.

20.04 is focal.

I have zero idea if that matters in this case. I'm merely pointing it out.
