Fixing Chrome Apt Errors on Debian/Ubuntu (Failed to fetch http://dl.google.com/linux...)

While running a typical update on Ubuntu 14.04 I ran into the following error relating to Chrome.

W: Failed to fetch http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/dists/stable/Release Unable to find expected entry 'main/binary-i386/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)

The fix for this is fairly simple.

sudo vim /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list

You should see something like the following.

### THIS FILE IS AUTOMATICALLY CONFIGURED ###
# You may comment out this entry, but any other modifications may be lost.
deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main

I changed the contents of this file to the following.

### THIS FILE IS AUTOMATICALLY CONFIGURED ###
# You may comment out this entry, but any other modifications may be lost.
# deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main
deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main

Next, I saved the file and ran sudo apt-get update and the update ran as expected.
