I am a newbie to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and I want to install Anbox. I am having trouble installing Anbox the way given in the current tutorials. my trouble is

$ sudo snap install --devmode --beta anbox
error: snap "anbox" is not available on beta for this architecture (i386)
but exists on other architectures (amd64).

the answer is simple, you are using a 32-bit(i386) OS. Unfortunately Anbox don't support a 32-bit system(i386).It only exists on 64-bit(amd64).Try installing android on a Virtual Box

  • There isn't a 32-bit ISO file for Ubuntu 18.04. New installations of Ubuntu 18.04 are 64-bit only. Maybe a 64-bit OS is installed, but the required anbox-modules-dkms package is not installed. After the anbox-modules-dkms package is installed you have to manually load the kernel modules. – karel Sep 15 '18 at 9:25
  • i'm using 16.04 the same problem is also shown for me too! – Arjun K Shibu Sep 15 '18 at 12:55
  • The difference is that 16.04 has both a 32-bit ISO file and a 64-bit ISO file, but 18.04 (like in the question) has 64-bit only. – karel Sep 15 '18 at 12:57
  • Then why does the installation show a message like this – Arjun K Shibu Sep 15 '18 at 13:22
  • I'm running 32-bit Ubuntu 18.04LTS, and did not need iso - simply upgraded from 16.10 over the years. Roger on the anbox leaving 32-bit hanging out to dry... and installing android 9 via Virtual Box is a nightmare...
