Wine appears to be part of Intrepid's Universe set of packages.  Is the 
"deb intrepid universe" line 
commented out?

The existing system most likely got wine from either a manual install or 
wine may have previously been in a different repository.  Apt and dpkg 
will still show the package, but it will not recieve any updates if the 
universe repository is commented.
