Using the link that Brian gave, I tried to follow this page:

If you are running i386 (32-bit), then you need to reinstall with amd64. Most modern PC and server hardware is capable of running a 64-bit OS.
If you are running amd64 already, then change your sources.list line so it looks like this:
deb [arch=amd64] http://research.cs.wisc.edu/htcondor/ubuntu/stable/ precise contrib
I have seen problems in the past where Ubuntu tries to retrieve both i386 and amd64 packages from the package index, unless you tell it only amd64 is available.
