1.) Run command to enable 32 bit architecture (if you haven’t already):
sudo dpkg –add-architecture i386
Type user password (no asterisk feedback) when it asks and hit Enter to continue.

2.) Install the repository key by running command:
wget -O – | sudo apt-key add –

3.) Add wine repository via command (for Ubuntu 20.04 and Linux Mint 20):
sudo apt-add-repository ‘deb focal main’
NOTE: You may replace focal in the code with:

bionic for Ubuntu 18.04 and Linux Mint 19.x
xenial for Ubuntu 16.04

4.) Add PPA for the required libfaudio0 library:
For Ubuntu 18.04 and Linux Mint 19.x only, libfaudio0 library is still required to install from a third-party repository by running command:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cybermax-dexter/sdl2-backport

5.) Finally install Wine 5.17 via command:
sudo apt update && sudo apt install –install-recommends winehq-devel

NOTE: installing the latest development release will automatically remove the stable version (if installed).
And for the unmet dependencies issue installing 32-bit libraries, try running command:
sudo apt-get install libgnutls30:i386 libldap-2.4-2:i386 libgpg-error0:i386 libxml2:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386 libsdl2-2.0-0:i386 libfreetype6:i386 libdbus-1-3:i386 libsqlite3-0:i386
