Ubuntu – Repository ‘http://miktex.org/download/ubuntu xenial InRelease’ doesn’t support architecture ‘i386’

16.04

I installed MikTex following this tutorial:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys D6BC243565B2087BC3F897C9277A7293F59E4889

echo "deb http://miktex.org/download/ubuntu xenial universe" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/miktex.list

sudo apt-get update

I got this note message:

N: Skipping acquire of configured file 'universe/binary-i386/Packages' as repository 'http://miktex.org/download/ubuntu xenial InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'i386'

How to get rid of this?

Best Answer

For you information. If you have 64-bit CPU and 64-bit only repository you should have the following line in sources.list:

deb [arch=amd64] http://miktex.org/download/ubuntu xenial universe

Here [arch=amd64] did the trick.

But texlive is better.
