Proceed with these changes to the user installation? [Y/n]: 

I don’t want to mess up my system. Can I press Y?

You can safely proceed with install. It’s just flatpak runtime? (or whatever it’s called) needed to run Bottles as flatpak. It won’t actually install Gnome for you, just for flatpak apps.

Source: I’m using Linux Mint Cinnamon right now.
