Learn to Install 32-bit Libraries of Android Studio in 64-bit Ubuntu

I have been trying to install 32-bit Libraries of Android Studio in 64-bit Ubuntu simply to fail over and over again. I have heard it more than once and now it seems to happen to you as well. The thing is that 64-bit Ubuntu does not support 32-bit packages by default. Therefore, while installing 32-bit libraries it shows the same error that drives you mad these days.

After installing Android Studio in 64-bit Ubuntu, you must also try to install some 32-bit libraries. The usual command for installing them is none other than: sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libncurses5:i386 libstdc++6:i386 lib32z1 libbz2-1.0:i386. Then, when trying to run this command shows the error:
E: unmet dependencies.
libncurses5:i386 : Depends: libtinfo5:i386 (= 6.1-1ubuntu1) and nothing is getting installed, right?

As you can see, you’re in a vicious circle, even if you do your best to play by the book. How to fix this issue? I might have solution for you. This brief guide should help you in finding the right track, so keep on reading the detailed procedure:
