Running sudo apt-get -f install does nothing. The only way to get rid of this error is to run sudo apt-get remove ia32-libs ia32-libs-multiarch:i386 gstreamer0.10-plugins-good:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386

What is wrong, and how can I fix this?

Thank you!

Try "dpkg --configure -a". – harisibrahimkv May 26 '12 at 18:14
if "dpkg --configure -a" not work, then open /var/cache/apt and clean the "archive" and "update" folder if present. Delete any "lock" file if present. – Curious Apprentice May 26 '12 at 18:48
Install "BleachBit". Run it as Sudo. – Curious Apprentice May 26 '12 at 18:49

You experience a bug in the libjack-jackd2-0 package, version 1.9.8~dfsg.2-1precise1 (which isn't a version ever published in Ubuntu, must have come from somewhere else).

It claims to be Multi-Arch: same, but that file differs between architectures.

You can certainly safely delete /usr/share/doc/libjack-jackd2-0/changelog.Debian.gz. Then run APT again and everything run smoothly.
