Hi all, 

Hopefully someone will be able to help me.


When I goto Manage Wine Versions.

It shows me the menu, but shows "Wine Packages website is unavailable"


Current POL Version: 4.3.4

running on Ubuntu 22.10 Kinetic.


Any help would be greatly appreciated, or a manual way to add a different wine version.

You might want to have a look at these posts:

This function used to work only intermittently lately and noone has come up with a solution so far.

My guess is, that the developers put most of their attention and energy in the upcoming new Playonlinux, called "Phoenicis" .. .

There is currently no known fix for this intermittent problem with the function. The new Playonlinux release has received the majority of the developers' focus and effort.

Intermittent problems, could these problems be caused by the server which hosts the Wine binaries for PlayOnLinux?
