Ubuntu 20.04 - Multiarch Support not possible, so Crossover 18 fails to install

Apparently Ubuntu has dropped 32bit support

When I try to install I get a pre-dependency error.

sudo gdebi crossover_18.1.0-1.deb 
Reading package lists... Done

This package is uninstallable
[b]Dependency is not satisfiable: multiarch-support[/b]

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
has no effect.

I can't see anything in the FAQ or install guides. How do I proceed?

Try this guide it's for 18.04 but it works for 20.04.

We have made changes to CrossOver 19.x so that it works better with the recent versions of Ubuntu. Are you using CrossOver 18.1 because of a regression?

I would suggest trying the .bin installer for 18.1 - it is possible that will work where the .deb failed.

Erori întâlnite în timpul prelucrării:

If i do "sudo apt install -f" like un previous versions, dpkg wants to completely remove crossover.
Also, trying to install "libnss-mdns" (64bit or 32bit leads to even more errors).
