I installed flatpak via apt-get on my 32-bit Laptop running antiX Linux, Version 19.2 Marielle Franco, and I added the flathub.flatpakrepo rep per the istructions for Debian systems.
After rebooting my laptop, I tried to install the 32-bit Flakpak for the Spotify client without success.
I get the following error. Looks like there is a problem with the Spotify 32-bit Flatpak file. Any ideas on how to get it fixed?
$ flatpak install flathub com.spotify.Client
Looking for matches…
Required runtime for com.spotify.Client/i386/stable (runtime/org.freedesktop.Platform/i386/18.08) found in remote flathub
Do you want to install it? [Y/n]: Y
Thanks for the comment. But I am a little confused. As you can see from my previous post, the 32-bit version of freedesktop appeared to download and install okay. It was just the 32-bit version of the spotify client that would not download properly. Looks like it might be corrupt.
Spotify doesn’t allow us to re-distribute the binary. So the install step downloads spotify from upstream & install it. As that build is very old, the url is broken and hence it’s not working for you anymore.
Thanks for the info. Yes, I see that flatpak is trying to download the deb file for the 32-bit Spotify client from the Spotify repos. I tried to download it directly using curl but it failed. It sure looks like the .deb file is corrupt or perhaps the permissions are set incorrectly.
I have reported the problem to the Spotify Community Forums.
I am hoping Spotify will fix the corrupt .deb file or at least inform me that it no longer develops and supports the 32-bit Spotify client.
