Ubuntu – Ubuntu 19.04 can not install winehq-staging


How does one install winehq-staging on Ubuntu 19.04 given that winehq is full two days late on having a repository for disco dingo?

sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ disco main'

stable version will work as expected, but if stagging is needed this is what I discovered, otherwise, I get unresolved dependency.

names and version do not match in the repository table, so for

Ubuntu 19.04 disco -> sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ cosmic main'

Ubuntu 18.04 bionic -> sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ xenial main'
