i386 itself is just used to refer to 32-bit Linux on the x86 architecture as a whole. Debian hasn't supported actual i386 for a very long time (In fact, the Linux kernel dropped support for actual i386 a couple years ago.). This is not where we need to look for the issue.
What we need is the actual command used and what the user is trying to do.
