Mostly 32 bit and 64 bit operating system are used by many users.Either it can be Linux,Windows,Solaris,MacOS or any.
64 bit Software are installed only in 64 bit Operating System. But 32 bit software can be installed in 32 bit and 64 bit Operating System.(But we always prefer to use 32 bit software to 32 bit O.S)
In case if you are trying to install 64 bit software in 32 bit Operating system ,it will not be installed and show the error “wrong architecture ”
The above was basic information.
To solve your problem in Linux Mint.
Open the terminal and run the command
arch. It will show O.S architecture in linux.
As per your question,it seems you have installed 32 bit Linux Mint.Hence, suggest you to download 32 bit Google Chrome for your Linux Mint
and run the command,
sudo dpkg -i package-name-you-downloaded.deb
(Replace package-name-you-downloaded.deb with actual file name )
