    Re: Unable to install Brave Browser

    I would first get your system upgraded (Current)>>(71 packages can be upgraded.)
    sudo apt upgrade
    Reboot if required and next try this:
    sudo apt install brave-keyring brave
    Sorry i totally missed the fact that your using a 32 bit install>>>>so, Brave web browser for Linux is only available for 64-bit architecture operating systems, so there is no 32-bit version available for your operating system.

    With realization of one's own potential and self-confidence in one's ability, one can build a better world.
