Starting today, I cannot do any updates on my Ubuntu 16.10 desktop computer. When I try to run commands such as
sudo apt-get update it says:
Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies: libsnmp30:i386 : Depends: libperl5.22:i386 (>= 5.22.1) but it is not installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
When I try to run
sudo apt-get install -f, it says:
Get:1 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu yakkety/main i386 libperl5.22 i386 5.22.2-3 [3,028 kB] Fetched 3,028 kB in 0s (34.5 MB/s) (Reading database ... 336306 files and directories currently installed.)

Anyone know the trick to fix this? I don't know why I would have a i386 package, since this is a 64-bit installation:
