Can't install Linux native games

I get a Runtime error (Wine is not installed) whenever i try to install any Linux native games. I have tried on two different systems, a desktop running Arch, and my laptop running Solus. I dual boot Win10 on my desktop to play Windows games, so I have no reason or purpose to have Wine installed on my Linux partition.

Wine should never be required to install/play native games.

Here is a pastebin of lutris -d while trying to install Darkest Dungeon on Solus using the GOG native install scripts: ####@########### ~ $ lutris -d2021-11-21 21:35:09,841: Package 'distro' unavai - Pastebin.com. I get the same error when trying to install Stellaris as well.

Hm. That’s weird indeed. The download page only suggests WINE to be installed when the user wants to play Windows based games.

It could be a bug. Issues like this can be posted here:
