You can't install any 64-bit software to a 32-bit Ubuntu.


PC computer chips have 16 bits, 20 bits, 32 bits, 48 bits or 64 bits for addressing information.

Just as you can take a V-8 engine and stop feeding fuel to 4 cylinders to improve gas mileage you can take a 64-bit computer chip and make it behave like a 32-bit computer chip. But you can't make a 32-bit computer chip behave like a 64-bit computer chip just as you can't make a 4 cylinder engine operate as a V-8 engine for more torque and horsepower.
