How to install/update to Wine (linked to “development” or “stable” repos) version 3.1-x in Fedora 27 i86-64

TL;DR

Run this command in your terminal:

sudo dnf install wine --refresh --enablerepo=updates-testing --allowerasing

After battling with quite confusing state where WineHQ has left Fedora 27 builds, I have been looking to get wine 3.1.1 installed on my machine for months already. Also, the official site of the project. found in https://wiki.winehq.org/Fedora , is more or less useless ; forum posts like these… well…same.

Luck;y, good fella’ of Fedora community has made new build for new packages, found via: https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=1041650 (you need FAS account to access the contents of the link)

Having me spotting that moment, I tried to get it installing..and I was failing quite unpleasantly, as you can see in my created pastebin: https://pastebin.com/Fs9Ci9wn

This morning I decided to give a shot again. I executed following command in my shell:

[me@pc ~]$ sudo dnf update wine --refresh --enablerepo=updates-testing

And again got the freaking error:

Last metadata expiration check: 0:00:00 ago on Wed 14 Feb 2018 02:42:32 PM EET.
Package wine available, but not installed.
No match for argument: wine
Error: No packages marked for upgrade.

But then, as there was quite puzzling sentence in the buildsystem web ui’s build page (https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2018-0a41fdd8f0 ; you will need same FAS account as above to open it):

This release will disable Wine-Staging as the maintainer is no longer producing updates.

I decided to … disable .. well, erase .. these winehq-staging packages by adding ‘–allowerasing’ switch to the same line.

After some moments.. it was complete!
