After adding facebook hhvm repository on Ubuntu 16.04, i get following error when running “apt update” command.

N: Skipping acquire of configured file 'main/binary-i386/Packages' as repository 'https://dl.hhvm.com/ubuntu xenial InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'i386'

This is fixed by editing

vi /etc/apt/sources.list


deb https://dl.hhvm.com/ubuntu xenial main

Replace with

deb [arch=amd64] https://dl.hhvm.com/ubuntu xenial main
