I visited http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/wily/en/man1/conky.1.html to see which version of conky was available for that release.

man page for conky

Why is only i386 shown? Even when I viewed any of the older releases, only i386 was listed.

I know that the 64-bit version is available at least for 14.04 LTS because that is what I have:

$ apt-cache policy conky
  Installed: 1.9.0-4
  Candidate: 1.9.0-4
  Version table:
 *** 1.9.0-4 0
      500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/universe amd64 Packages
      100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

The man pages are the same for all architectures, the server seems to use the i368 packages to get them.

To see which version of a package is available for a specific Ubuntu version you can use the Ubuntu Packages Search.

If you search for 'conky' you see that the version in conky is 1.10.0-1 and the package is the same for all architectures (all).

If you click the wily link of the package description you get the details for that package in wily.
