When I am trying to run the apt-get update as a root user on ubuntu 12.10 64 bit am getting the error.
Here is the error message:

Should I install 32 or 64 bit Ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 20, 2011
I want to install Ubuntu 10.04 (I heard 10.10 doesn't work well with my network card) but I wanted to ask if I should install the 32 or 64 bit. My current machine runs 64-bit Windows 7.
Under the "Select a Release" page, I found the following regarding the 64-bit install:
"Choose this to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2). If you have a non-64-bit processor made by AMD, or if you need full support for 32-bit code, use the Intel x86 images instead."
My processor is: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU @ 2.10GHz 2.1o GHz
Do I install 32-bit since I have an Intel chip? Or the 64-bit because I have a Core duo?
Thank you in advance,
64 bit vs. 32 bit Ubuntu

As most of you know, I went ahead and installed Ubuntu on my AMD dual core machine. Now the question arises: Should I install the 64 bit version and take advantage of all 4 gigs of RAM, or should I just cruise with the 32 bit version for a while? Inquiring minds want to know....

[SOLVED] Overwriting the Ubuntu 64 bit partition with installation of 32 bit version
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 11, 2011
Hello. I just installed Ubuntu 64 bit 11.04 on my new PC and I'm not very happy with it.
Found out that installing video drivers is a drag everytime a new kernel version comes around, and with the 32 bit version everything seems just easier. And I need Ubuntu to work with the development of intense graphic applications, which should be better to work on a 32 bit environment.
So here is my question: is it possible to overwrite the existing Ubuntu installed with another installation of it, now with 32-bit instead of 64? I don't want to keep using the 64 bit one, so I am just fine with deleting it.
Thanks for the attention, sorry for my horrible english.
Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit on Lenovo B570
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 27, 2011
I have a problem installing Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit from CD on my (new) Lenovo B570 laptop
I've set up the BIOS to boot from CD but on startup the CD sounds like it spins up but then nothing happens, screen remains blank or in some instances it has a partially corrupted blank screen
The laptop came pre-installed with Win 7 and lenovo have a 'feature' one stop recovery which I think has a backup of the Win system on a separate partition, possibly this is causing a problem
I have also tried installing Ubuntu form a USB stick with the same 64 bit .iso but same thing happens
Not sure how to progress with fixing the problem as I can't even get to a cmd prompt

32 or 64 bit Ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 26, 2012
I recently did a reinstall of Ubuntu. The aim was to apply the 64-bit version. How can I check to see if I'm running 64 bit? Is there a terminal command for that or something?
Dual Boot Ubuntu from Windows 7 64 bit
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 18, 2010
I've been reading many threads on the ability to dual boot. I am not a "newbe" but have installed linux and Fedora many times, included starting from Windows 7 using EasyBCD.
I wish to install Ubuntu Studio 64AMD on my PC:
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965
HD: Hitachi HDT721064SLA360 SATA ~600GB C: 200GB & D: 200GB, Fedora: 100GB the remainder for Ubuntu.
My problem is that the installation instructions don't seem to talk about NOT installing grub on MBR as it was on the Fedora install. I don't want to accidentally overwrite my MBR. Is this option available? Will EasyBCD work with Ubuntu?
No, I want Windows 7 left intact and do not want to dual boot from Grub!
