This usually means that the i386 architecture is not enabled.

This is actually a series of three commands, with each one run only if
the previous one succeeds:

$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get install wine32

Since 'apt-get update' and 'apt-get install wine32' require root, but
only the dpkg command was run under sudo, the second command fails (and
the third doesn't even get run).

If you run each command under sudo separately (either one at a time, or
all on the same command line), you'll probably see this succeed.
