This can't work, because 'dpkg -i' needs files (not package names). 
Please provide the output of:

dpkg --print-architecture
dpkg --print-foreign-architectures
apt-cache policy
apt-cache policy libc-bin
aptitude --simulate safe-upgrade
aptitude --simulate full-upgrade

I'm assuming your package lists are updated, otherwise please run 
'aptitude update' (or press 'u' in interactive mode) first.

Kind regards,
