view story

http://askubuntu.com – Ubuntu 12.04, couple days old. Multiarch is installed. Checked in Synaptics and Software Center.. reinstalled a couple times, from both places. It still gives me these errors: $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure -a Package `ia32-libs-multiarch' is not installed and no info is available. Use dpkg --info (= dpkg-deb --info) to examine archive files, and dpkg --contents (= dpkg-deb --contents) to list their contents. /usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: ia32-libs-multiarch is not installed $ sudo dpkg --info ia32-libs-multiarch dpkg-deb: error: failed to read archive `ia32-libs-multiarch': No such file or director (HowTos)
