Wine says "please reactivate your key"

I tried to install wine on my pi-top and it failed at the last step with the error:

Trying to forward binary /usr/bin/wine guest => host but the host one already exists.

so we figured that meant it was already installed so we just tried running wine and that gave us this error:

Please, reactivate your key!
License check has failed.

we never had a key, as far as I know. Should there be one? Do I need to uninstall and reinstall wine? I’m totally new to this stuff and would appreciate some help.
