Fixing fetch google chrome apt error 'stable InRelease' doesn`t support architecture 'i386' on ubuntu
Recently I got an error while running the command
sudo apt-get update. The error was
Failed to fetch http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/dists/stable/Release
Unable to find expected entry 'main/binary-i386/Packages' in Release file
I was not able to fix this issue because my system showing some broken pakeges are there. Here are details about this error:
The reason behind this error is due to Google dropped support for
32-bit Chrome on Linux an error occurs when
updating apt in 64-bit systems (with multi arch enabled).
To solve this error we have to modify the sources.list file for Chrome
- Open terminal and run command
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list.
- Now change the
deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable mainline to
deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main.
Ctrl + Xand type yes to save file.
- Now run
sudo apt-get update.
