Bug Description

Test case:
go to any focal package page that doesn't offer i386 packages.
amend /filelist to url

What happens:


No such package in this suite on this architecture.

Conversely go to a package that does build i386, do the same

What happens:
shows filelist.

In my opinion such URL (without architecture) makes sense only for packages that are architecture-independent ("all").
Arch-independent packages in the distant past have been built on i386 builders, and now (I guess at least since xenial) are packaged on amd64. I assume that due to this history when omitting the architecture in the URL, the i386 version is displayed. See e.g. which shows "i386" in the header.
Maybe URLs without architecture should be marked as wrong with some different error message except for arch-independent packages.

Thanks Manfred, that makes sense. Got so used to simply amending to url stopped noticing it 'redirected' to i386.
So editing the url now produces intended result..
