Have you tried installing and configuring cups first?
The command line shows that you are using ubuntu.
Open up Synaptic and use the interface to install CUPS then install wine by CLI after.

wine has already been installed successfully.

The problem is that an earlier install of cups failed, so the apt-get is trying to complete that installation. However, the daemon/server 'cupsd' is hanging.

I don't know the reason for this (perhaps something to do with a network printer?). You could try purging cups 'apt-get --purge autoremove cups' and reinstalling 'apt-get install cups'.
