I'm seeing the above error message when I try to install steam on my fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04.
I'm unsure how to proceed obtaining this package. Does anyone have any advice?
I dont know steam, but the error suggests that you tried to install its 32bit version on a 64bit system. If there is a 64bit version of steam, then better use that one.
My situation: Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS 64-bit on a Asus Eee PC Netbook
How I solved my problem:
Installed Steam using the link from the Steam website
I ran this command in the terminal:
then opened the Steam launcher.
When the launcher opened it started to automatically download the rest of the packages.
****Note: May need to reboot after executing the command
