You should also now have a look at the "Update Manager" function in your System --> Administration menu
as well as look for the "Synaptic Package Manager" in the same menu.
Those are graphical tools help you do the tasks without having to use a terminal and the command-line.

ps.: why do you quote yourself?

a few things:

- writing in CAPITAL letters is considered the equivalent of yelling instead of just saying something - so: please don't do that
- you respond to a post by clicking the "Post Reply" button bottom left of the last post in a thread
- you could use the "Quote" button too - but then: please edit out all superfluous stuff - I know what I said - and if I want to read it I can just scroll up one post and read my own

The broken package is probably one which is not yet configured and thus not working - the question you posted are implying this.
Seems you where given two options:
1.) automatic default (or using some tool "dbconfig-common")
2.) configure it yourself if you are experienced and know what to do

What is it that makes so hard to coose the best out of these two?

sudo apt-get install wine

Optionally, to help you configure if you are not technical:

sudo apt-get install wine-doors

It is either winedoors or wine-doors, I forgot which. Try both.

Now, type wine *packagename* where packagename is the name of the program you wish to run.

I don't get it.

You ran the command:
sudo dpkg --configure -a
right?

And then you got the message you posted - which requires you to choose HOW you prefer to configure a database
(which is a prerequisite for "acidbase" - which will not work until the database is configured)

Now you want to configure this database - right?
So you ran the suggested command: dbconfig-common ?

Then what? What went not as expexted? What other command are you talking about?
Can you confirm that I even described the situation correctly?

As far as I can see - everything is in order. (acidbase not working left aside - but that was not your goal, was it?)

You should now be able to use synaptic (the graphical package-manager) to install packages again.

We are not in front of your computer - you are...
