Problems update libc6

Hello all,
I had slight problems to upgrade to libc6-2.3.6-8 as this package did not want 
to install. Hereby I have a slight understanding problem. Can someone 
explain, what now is the correct way ?

Short description:

I have a chroot, as described on the debian-AMD64 site. There you wrote:

"You also need a link to your 32bit linker in the /lib path. Change in to 
directory /lib and create a link to the 32bit linker library of your chroot: 
(The name of the 64bit linker is ld-linux-x86-64.so.2)"

I did so, when I first installed this computer.

Now to upgrade libc6 I had to delete this link, otherwise I could not install 
the new libc6, and, now the link does not point any more 
to /var/chroot/sid-ia32/lib/libc-2.3.6 any more, but to /lib/libc-2.3.6-8.

Is this information on the AMD64-site deprecated ?

For your information, here the relevant links

4505604    0 lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root      11 2006-03-12 19:57 ld-linux-so.2 -> 
4505603    0 lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root      11 2006-05-19 14:54 
ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 -> ld-2.3.6.so
4505759    0 lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root      25 2006-05-02 09:28 
ld-lsb-x86-64.so.3 -> /lib/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2

I want to run 32-bit and 64-bit programs. How is the status now ?

Is chroot still needed ? Should I use chroot any more because it is easier to 
manage ? 

Please help me to understand the policy after this.

Thanks and best regards
