Check your /etc/ld.so.conf and comment out your 32bit chroot, if you
added it there.  Then upgrade and put the chroot back again.

I don't know if the ia32libs package would do the same thing (I sure
hope not).

It's a small inconvinience you get when you add your 32bit chroot to
your regular 64bit environment (so you don't have to use the chroot
command to run 32bit programs all the time but instead just let the
loader deal with finding the right libs).
