A few days ago I noticed this error message in the updates:

Failed to fetch http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/dists/stable/Release Unable to find expected entry 'main/binary-i386/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)

Actually, the solution was simple by adding [arch=amd64] after deb

deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main

in the file

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list

But after every restart (I don't know a precise moment) it just disappears, any idea how to fix it for good?

According to webupd8_fix-failed-to-fetch (read the update), edit the following two files:

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list

Change line #3 from:

deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main

to:

deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main

Edit /opt/google/chrome/cron/google-chrome

Change REPOCONFIG and SSLREPOCONFIG from:

REPOCONFIG="deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main"
SSLREPOCONFIG="deb https://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main"

to:

REPOCONFIG="deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main"
SSLREPOCONFIG="deb [arch=amd64] https://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main"
