    How did you go about installing it?
    Did you use Ubuntu's package manager? Or did you download from the Wine website?

    That would work if it was installed via apt-get.
    However, we're still waiting to hear about how it was installed.

    Been a while since I used Ubuntu.
    But this should work for you:
    Code:
    sudo upgrade wine
    If not, then do this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge wine
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install install wine
