SOLVED: Linux .deb install gives error when you apt update a repository

Installed Brave on Kubuntu Linux using instructions. Although installs correctly, everytime I do an apt update I get the following message:

N: Skipping acquire of configured file 'main/binary-i386/Packages' as repository ' stable InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'i386'

To correct this you need to add the architecture parameterarch=amd64 in the deb command. E.g.

echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg arch=amd64] stable main"|sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list

However if already installed you can just edit the following file and the message will go away.


And add the arch=amd64 as follows:

deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg arch=amd64] stable main
