Error at install / DirectX?

I have wine 2.0.3 on Debian.
Here's the output of
#msiexec /i EpicInstaller-6.10.0-fortnite.msi
err:ole:CoGetClassObject no class object {00021401-0000-0000-c000-000000000046} could be created for context 0x1
err:msi:ITERATE_CreateShortcuts CLSID_ShellLink not available
err:msi:ITERATE_Actions Execution halted, action L"InstallDirectX" returned 1627
err:msi:ITERATE_Actions Execution halted, action L"ExecuteAction" returned 1627

I have looked up DirectX but wineHQ FAQ warned me "Wine itself provides a DirectX implementation that, although it has a few bugs left, should run fine. Wine supports DirectX 9.0c at this time. Work on DirectX 10 is underway. If you attempt to install Microsoft's DirectX, you will run into problems."
So what do I do there? Cheers!
