[Solved] Issue installing wine from the official repositories.

I'm trying to install wine, but upon running 
$ sudo pacman -S wine
it returns
error: target not found wine
and If I try PlayOnLinux with
$ sudo pacman -S playonlinux
it returns
warning, cannot resolve "wine", a dependency of playonlinux

Wine should still be in the official repositories, and my research has turned up nothing for this issue.  Actually I'm not even sure if this is happening to anyone other than me?

Thanks,
Shane

P.S.
I'm new to the forums, so hopefully I posted this properly, and in the right place.

Please update your system first, install new packages later.

Karol is trying to say pacman -Syu wine      tongue

Let's see if that works.  Oh, and welcome to Arch Linux

Thank you,

Tried pacman -Syu wine, and everything is up to date.  Unfortunately still receiving "Error: Target not found: wine"

Re: [Solved] Issue installing wine from the official repositories.

Do you have the "multilib" repo enabled in /etc/pacman.conf ?

Re: [Solved] Issue installing wine from the official repositories.

I don't have multilib enabled, but I'm on a 32bit machine.  It's my understanding that multilib is so 64bit machines can grab packages off of the 32bit repos.

This is also my understanding but, looking at here it seems to be in the community repo on 686, so next question would be is the community repo enabled?

Re: [Solved] Issue installing wine from the official repositories.

I have community enabled in "/etc/pacman.conf", but I do not have community-testing enabled.

Re: [Solved] Issue installing wine from the official repositories.

Hm, then maybe you should try switching mirrors and run a "pacman -Syy" to force refresh the package databases.. And post the output of "uname -a" for kicks and giggles. Oh and hell why not post the contents of /etc/pacman.conf and /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Re: [Solved] Issue installing wine from the official repositories.

uname -a returned

Linux k0ALA 4.0.5-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Sat Jun 6 18:37:49 CEST 2015 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Does this mean my computer is 64bit, because I was pretty sure it wasn't... :-/

Probably best to use:

# pacman -Syyu

EDIT: @OP: Enable [Multilib] in pacman.conf and then run:

# pacman -Syyu wine
