We still want evidence from uname -a regarding the actual word size used by the Linux system you're trying to install on (as requested in the forums, but not given)

UbuntuStudio 16.04 (and other versions) does have a kernel that is able to run 32bit binaries. However, it does not come with 32 bit libraries by default. As such a 32 bit application would likely fail. Do notice the (quite long) list of 32 bit libs an application like wine wants to install so it can run.

related issue: libjack is not 32/64 bit multi-arch safe (it can be by accident, but not by design)
