I run lscpu and get among other information:

Architecture:          i686
CPU op-mode(s):        32-bit, 64-bit

The first line means I am running Ubuntu 32 bit.

Does the second line of the output above mean I can install Ubuntu-16.04-desktop-amd64.iso ?


Yes, you can. Your CPU can run in 64-bit mode.
