What happened to the ia32-libs package?

I want to install some Android plugins in Eclipse on my 64bit Ubuntu, but since android is 32bit compatible, I also have to install ia-32-libs. Unfortunately, trying to install it gives the following error:

Couldn't find package ia32-libs

How should I install this package?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Try this in the terminal:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-cache search ia32

there you will see how the package is named. ia32-libs is a transitional package. There is another one called ia32-libs-multiarch

so you can try to install them:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch
