When I try updating my Ubuntu 18.04,

I got the following message:

Reading package lists... Done
N: Skipping acquire of configured file 'universe/binary-i386/Packages' as repository 'https://repos.codelite.org/ubuntu disco InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'i386'

What does it mean?

I already referred to this question (Skipping acquire of configured file 'main/binary-i3860/Packages'), but by removing the architecture 'i3860" I am not sure it will do any better.

Is there any other way to remove such message?

Thank you for your kind help. Really appreciate it

  • Please add output of grep -r codelite /etc/apt --include="*.list" to the question.

  • I don't think the linked question is relevant tbh: although your title refers to i1386, the message itself says i386 (which is a valid architecture name - although not one that is supported by the codelite repository, at least not for 19.04) Aug 22 '19 at 17:32
  • Which release really? lsb_release -rc please.

You have Ubuntu version bionic, but are looking for files for Ubuntu disco.

Locate the file that contains repos.codelite.org...

In terminal...

cd /etc/apt # change directory

grep -i repos.codelite.org sources.list # see if it's in this file

grep -i repos.codelite.org sources.list.d/*.list # see if it's in one of these files

sudo -H gedit found_file_name.list # edit the found .list file

change the line that contans "repos.codelite.org":

deb http://xxxxxxxxxx disco xxxx


deb [arch=amd64] http://xxxxxxxxx bionic xxxx

Note: if you have any other references to disco in your .list files, change them to bionic.

  • Thank you for your answer. It greatly help solve my problem. Apologies for the late reply.
