Trouble installing 16.2.5-1 on Ubuntu 16.04 over older versions

Fails immediately upon trying to run the installer. I already have earlier versions of CrossOver installed (13.2.0 and 15.0.1), but installing the new 16.2.5-1, gives a message saying
Breaks existing package 'ia32-crossover' that conflict: 'cxoffice5'. But the '/home/username/Downloads/Crossover/crossover_16.2.5-1.deb' provides it via: 'cxoffice5'


Does this mean I must uninstall the previous version? I'm reluctant to do so if it means I might lose the existing bottles or not be able to reinstall the older version if needed.

Also says I need to run dpkg --add-architecture i386. When I do so, dpkg says the argument is not recognized. I doubt this is needed, since I already have older versions installed.
