Ubuntu downloads i386 version of all packages on chrome and firefox


Hi,
I'm running ubuntu 11.04 unity on a custom build, intel i7 processor.
Until today everything was working fine. Now, whenever I download any package, it downloads the i386 version. I've had this build for 3 days. the problem started after I installed wine.
I've tested on firefox and chrome, and neither works. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Just to verify, do you have a 32 bit or 64 bit processor?
