This question already has an answer here:

I am using Ubuntu 14.04. When I run sudo apt-get update, I get the following error:

W: Failed to fetch http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/dists/stable/Release Unable to find expected entry 'main/binary-i386/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

How do I correct this error?

You are getting this error because chrome has dropped support for its 32bit variant on Linux.You might want to shift to another browser. http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2016/01/google-chrome-linux-32-bit-discontinued

Chromium is your best alternative, considering how similar it is to Chrome.
