- Open a new Terminal window and run the following command:
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list
- In the text file that opens edit the file so that the line reads:
deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main
The only addition you need to make is entering the [amd64] architecture after ‘deb’ but preceding the ‘http’. Do not edit or replace any other text in this file.
- Hit Save. Close the Gedit window.
Now return to the Terminal and refresh your package list by running:
sudo apt-get update
The ‘failed to fetch’ APT error should no longer appear.
