I am new to linux. I tried today to install steam on my Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit through the .deb from the steam website. On launch, steam gave me the following error: "You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run: libc.so.6" I tried to follow a few tutorials online, I will update when I find them again, and installed a some different 32-bit libraries. Now I get this error each time I try to use apt-get or even open the software center.

installArchives() failed: Can't exec "locale": No such file or directory at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/Encoding.pm line 16.
Use of uninitialized value $Debconf::Encoding::charmap in scalar chomp at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/Encoding.pm line 17.

dpkg: error: 1 expected program not found in PATH or not executable
Note: root's PATH should usually contain /usr/local/sbin, /usr/sbin and /sbin
Error in function: 

What should I do ?

Update:

This is the installation I followed, which produced a dangerous warning at one point:

sudo apt-get install libc-bin:i386
