Thank you fehlix,
After 5 hrs, was able to follow .configuration, through multiple file downloads, to 'make.'
Now have a 1.8Gb wine-3.2 _Instructions indicate that I should delete remanants of present .wine and Drive_C , However, nothing lets me do that. By the way, 4 bible softwares that didn't operate before I started the file reworks, now are functioning. One message when trying uninstall, tells me it is not installed, others state can't unlock wine. Where does one go from here?

Not sure I understand. To get wine installed just follow the recommendations:
Quote from the MX Manual:
Best installed through MX Package Installer (under Misc); if installing with Synaptic, select "winehq-staging" to get all wine-staging packages.
