Check your library path and verify that the lib is in this path.
Depending on your archiecture e.g arm, intel, some libs may reside in different directories.

ia32-libs isn't used anymore AFAIK. You need libc6:i386 and probably other :i386 packages.

Also, I have no idea why you did this (you apparently followed an outdated guide):
Code:
sudo ln -s /lib64/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6 /lib64/libc.so.6
