Why can't I install the libstdc++6:i386 library on my x64 Ubuntu droplet?
I’m trying to host a game server on my DO Ubuntu x64 Droplet and it needs the libstdc++6:i386 library as a prerequisite. I had no problem installing this on my local Ubuntu x64 VM or on the Ubuntu x64 VM from another known VPS host so before I waste any of my time I’d like to know if Digital Ocean blacklists some apt packages like libstdc++6:i386.
For those interested, here is the full error message:
root@ubuntu-s-2vcpu-2gb-nyc1-01:~$ sudo apt-get install libstdc++6:i386
