Okay so my old 32-bit notebook got old and died.
I preserved the old HDD (with bootable Debian OS).
I bought a newer 64-bit notebook and gave it the old HDD.
It worked perfectly for a long time and continues to do so.
The issue I'm having is with
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade:
user@Debian:~$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies: libc-dev-bin : Depends: libc6 (< 2.14) but 2.19-18 is installed libc6-dev : Depends: libc6 (= 2.13-38+deb7u8) but 2.19-18 is installed libc6-i686 : PreDepends: libc6 (= 2.13-38+deb7u8) but 2.19-18 is installed locales : Depends: libc-bin (> 2.19) but 2.13-38+deb7u8 is installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
sudo apt-get -f install returns similar errors.
I feel like these errors must stem from the change in architecture.
How can I specify to use i386 or amd64 packages instead of i686?
