View Full Version : [xubuntu] 'apt architecture is i386'

July 3rd, 2019, 01:10 PM
Computer is Lenovo B560 with i3 processor, i686 architecture, op-modes 32 and 64bit. I want to run fully 64bit 19.04 system, but it will not load 18.10 , giving message 'apt architecture is i386'.

How do I get around this ?

If you've initially installed from a 32-bit image, as both i386 and i686 are, then you can't change that to 64-bit in-place nor as an upgrade. You'd need to install from a fresh AMD64 image.
