64-bit only software recommended for 32-bit system

Bug Description

In Software 3.26.1 on Xubuntu 17.04 (32-bit) there's a big banner advertising Atom editor under the headline "Featured application". After installation it didn't start and turns out Atom isn't available for Linux 32-bit systems, according to the website (https://github.com/atom/atom). So no wonder it didn't start.

It would be helpful I think to not show it in the Software center or at least have a warning about it not suitable for my system.

Re-opening as GNOME Software don't have any architecture information about snaps. So it is possible to show snaps that aren't available for your system.

Actually snapd might be doing the architecture matching for us, so it needs investigation to see if the problem still occurs.
