  • Are you using 18.04 or 16.04? It seems you've mixed up repository information of one with the other. – Kulfy Jul 31 '19 at 18:21
  • ubuntu 16.04... 64bit system – senthil kumar Jul 31 '19 at 18:46
  • Customer support give the solution, but i dont know how to solve .. please help me....You will need to review your apt sources.list file. You have a 32bit repo included, however you are running a 64 bit OS. – senthil kumar Jul 31 '19 at 19:03
  • It's not an error. Errors start with "E:" It's merely a Notification ("N:") and does not need to be 'fixed', because nothing is broken. – user535733 Jul 31 '19 at 19:29

This is not a message I would worry about. I get the same thing on my Google Earth entry:

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

Now, I can edit this line to say this, which gets rid of the error:

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

The problem is that every time Google Earth updates, it overwrites my changes. If you make the change to your nginx repo, it could do the same thing.

  • Show me your nginx repo line, please. – ajgringo619 Jul 31 '19 at 19:33
  • deb [ arch=amd64 ] archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial main – senthil kumar Jul 31 '19 at 19:42
  • That's the wrong entry. It looks like you added the nginx PPA; you need to find that file first. Also, as @Kulfy pointed out, your repo information is mixed up; on your system, your repos should be using xenial, not bionic. – ajgringo619 Jul 31 '19 at 19:53
