@f33dm3bits if you have time soon would you be able to let me know briefly what was the issue preventing Wine from installing? If I run into the same situation after installing Ubuntu permanently on my machine I'd like to be able to rectify it as with as little fuss as possible.
Yes I’ll explain it in short tomorrow. Logging off here since it’s late here.

libfaudio0 is a dependency it is not part of the WINE project - it does show up in Synaptic Package Manager - it shows up when I run sudo apt install libfaudio0 as well

Next in your Software&Update it should look like what I attached
You need to put a tick mark in Community-maintained (universe) and Software Restricted (multiverse) and uncheck CDROM

Er, ok... maybe I'll just come back here and re run the successful commands :oops:
Ubuntu has several sources within the main mirror:
Canonical-Supported free and open-source(main)
Community maintained free and open-source(universe)
Proprietary drivers for devices (restricted)
Software Restricted by copyright or legal issues(multiverse)

All the dependencies you needed for winehq-stable, wine stable, libopenal1, libfaudio0, etc where in the universe source. You can add either do like you did by ticking the second box and reloading the sources or you can did it by manually editing /etc/apt/sources.list and adding universe to the right lines and when having all of them ticked/added except for multiverse it would look like this.
Code:
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal main universe restricted
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-updates main universe restricted
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-backports main universe restricted
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-security main universe restricted
