Wine won't install

I downloaded the wine 1.1.22 development binary but when I attempt to install it I get this error:

(Reading database ... 103685 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace wine 1.0.1-0ubuntu6 (using wine_1.1.22~winehq0~ubuntu~9.04-0ubuntu1_i386.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement wine ...

By the way I tried removing the older wine package but that didnt solve the problem.
I'm running 32-bit Ubuntu Jaunty

Looks like broken package. Try re-downloading the deb (if you got it via apt, clear it's cache first ("sudo apt-get clean")).
