i have looked at some of the solutions here, but nothing worked: Unable to find expected entry 'main/binary-i386/Packages - Chrome and No more updates for Google Chrome | apt-get update error.
i'm currently running
Chrome 45.0.2454 (64-bit) on my
Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit box.
I have been trying to upgrade chrom to version 50 for several hours, but nothing seems to work.Tried doing it using Software Centre as well but to no avail (nothing happens when I click "Install" as mentioned in the first answer here as well). When i try to upgrade Chrome to 50, using
sudo apt-get update i get,
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).
i have added
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list, but when i do
sudo apt-get update i get the same error message.
my google-chrome.list file looks as below now:
deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main
How do i upgrade my chrome 45 to 50?
few more information to help someone help me:
