Ubuntu – Skippping acquire configured file – doesn’t support architecture ‘i386’


When I try updating my Ubuntu 18.04,

I got the following message:

Reading package lists... Done
N: Skipping acquire of configured file 'universe/binary-i386/Packages' as repository 'https://repos.codelite.org/ubuntu disco InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'i386'

What does it mean?

I already referred to this question (Skipping acquire of configured file 'main/binary-i3860/Packages'), but by removing the architecture 'i3860" I am not sure it will do any better.

Is there any other way to remove such message?

Thank you for your kind help. Really appreciate it

  • You have Ubuntu version bionic, but are looking for files for Ubuntu disco.

    Locate the file that contains repos.codelite.org...

    In terminal...

    cd /etc/apt # change directory

    grep -i repos.codelite.org sources.list # see if it's in this file

    grep -i repos.codelite.org sources.list.d/*.list # see if it's in one of these files

    sudo -H gedit found_file_name.list # edit the found .list file

    change the line that contans "repos.codelite.org":

    deb http://xxxxxxxxxx disco xxxx


    deb [arch=amd64] http://xxxxxxxxx bionic xxxx

    Note: if you have any other references to disco in your .list files, change them to bionic.
