Chrome is not shipped in 32bits version anymore. Hence the error message. No security issues
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

What killer de bug says is true for the last of the error messages. For the first ones, try setting another mirror server.

Hash sum mismatch is temporary. Sever has been actualized and you need to give it some time. Wait one or 2 hours before being worried. :wink:

Many thanks. Since using LM8 onwards I'd never seen this message so thought better to query it etc, in light of recent times and all that.

Thanks for setting me straight. Kind regards all
