[solved] testing/chimaera : removing/adding i386 breaks i386 install

Hi,

first I believed something went wrong during Beowulf to testing migration because the process removed all i386 packages and and i am now unable to install any i386 package :

sudo apt install wine32             
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package wine32:i386 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
  libwine:i386 libwine

E: Package 'wine32:i386' has no installation candidate

any i386 package "has no installation candidate"

I tried to remove and add i386 architecture :

sudo apt-get purge ".*:i386"
sudo dpkg --remove-architecture i386
sudo apt update
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt update

but nothing changed.

Then I installed a fresh Beowulf Virtualbox machine. I added i386 achitecture, then installed wine and wine32.
I migrated to testing. wine32 still work.

But then I tried to remove and add i386 architecture with the same commands as above, and guess what? I also can't install any i386 package with the same

E: Package 'xxxxxxxxxx:i386' has no installation candidate

message.

Nevermind. I It seems removing some of my /etc/apt/preferences.d/ files solved the problem.
