    Reading package lists… Done
    N: Skipping acquire of configured file ‘main/binary-i386/Packages’ as repository ‘http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb stable InRelease’ doesn’t support architecture ‘i386’

    Hence can’t install chrome either with this or downloading the installer which is for AMD architecture and my machine is Intelx86.
    Pl help!

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Vishal,

      The error is clear that you are using i386 architecture, and Google Chrome stopped support for 32-bit systems, it’s time to move to 64-bit for better application support..

      @Olympian,

      Linux Mint 13 is too old and latest Google Chrome required latest version of libraries, so better you should upgrade your Linux Mint to most recent version to install chrome on it.
