    Hello and Welcome

    More information on what is the exact error message an what version of Ubuntu might be helpful. Chrome only runs on 64 bit operating systems , but given the information I don't know if that is the problem.

    The first thing you need to do is install a supported release of Ubuntu. Natty went EOL in October 2012.

    There is very little point in trying to solve an issue with an unsupported release that old.

    Also, don't even try going the upgrade route from 11.04. Install 18.04, or soon 20.04, from scratch.
    If you ask for help, do not abandon your request. Please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    +1 on installing 18.04, today.

    A little knowledge about Ubuntu releases seems to be needed.
    There are LTS releases of Ubuntu and then there are all the others. Seems you should only be using LTS release. All the others, like 11.04 get 9 months of support, no more.

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LTS explains what LTS means.
    10.04, 12.04, 14.04, 16.04, 18.04 where all LTS releases. 16.04 has about 1 yr of support remaining. 18.04 has about 3 yrs of support remaining. See the pattern? April, even years are LTS. **Anything else** is not.

    Later this month, 20.04 will be released. It is usually best to wait a few months for any early issues to be resolved. Mid-June, I'll install 20.04 to see if it is ready for our use. People who are writing books would load 20.04-beta now and live with any issues. Nobody except a developer should use 20.04 in "production" or on their only system before June.

    Re: how do i install netflix or disneyplus into ubuntu?

    I assume you already got the point about using a supported release.

    Chrome only works on 64 bit, as google dropped support for 32 bits a few years ago. So you have to install a 64 bit version (amd64 – yes, that's also for intel processors). Upgrading from 11.04 would be very unlikely to work, but upgrading from 32 bit to 64 bit won't work for sure. So make that a fresh install. I hope your hardware supports 64 bit, but most computers since 2000 do.

    As far as I know Chrome cannot even install on anything older than 14.04.
    That's because no release earlier than that can satisfy the dependency requirements.
    They actually dropped support for 12.04 earlier than 12.04 was supported for because of that.
    (They dropped support for Chrome on Ubuntu 12.04 in January 2017 where as Ubuntu 12.04's end of life was after April 2017)

    How do I install a supported release of Ubuntu such as Ubuntu 18.04? I use a Macbook 2007. I don't think my computer burn CDs. If I use a USB stick I don't know how to open the file. And which file do I open?
