APT-GET UPDATE error due to end of Chrome 32-bit

 

Failed to fetch http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/dists/stable/Release

Error started recently during updates. Supposedly due to Google ceasing support for the 32-bit Chrome. This web site promises a fix: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2016/03/fix-failed-to-fetch-google-chrome-apt-error-ubuntu  As root, edit the lists file for chrome:

# nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list

Change the only useful line,

deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main

to read

deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main
