After typing:

dpkg --remove-architecture 1386

I get the message:

dpkg: error: unable to create new file '/var/lib/dpkg/arch-new': Permission denied

1386 is a typo, I'm trying to rid myself of in Ubuntu.


Run the command as root:

sudo dpkg --remove-architecture 1386

(putting my comment in an answer)
