This question already has an answer here:
Today I updated from 13.04 to 13.10. Then
sudo apt-get autoremove removed all 32bit packages.
How to get them back? How do I install ia32-libs again?
This is what I get if I try to install them back :
output$ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package ia32-libs is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source However the following packages replace it: lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0 E: Package 'ia32-libs' has no installation candidate
